Phonebloks is happening

Looks like the concept actually took off. Let's see where it goes now that Motorola is in on this.

PhoneBloks doesn't look like it'll work given it's implementation

Project Aura looks more likely given it's way of doing things.

It is a really interesting concept, however, I still remain skeptical. Every time I get excited for something that will "revolutionize the industry," I always end up disappointed.

I wonder how much each block is gonna cost, it would probably end ruining the whole cheaper cellphone idea

I think this might be my first mobile phone ever.

When people are willing to toss a $300 device every year or two for the pretty-much-the-same-thing latest version, you aren't going to reduce waste with such a silly idea.

I mean, I'm completely for reducing waste but the problem is with our throw away society, not with cellphones.

Although a very interesting the idea, it doesn't really solve the problem of electronic waste... Rather it only makes it smaller. :/

It would be nice to have a phone I can upgrade similar to my computer, just doing the piece I want/need to upgrade rather than a whole new phone.
