Google Announces Project Ara Conference: Modular Phones to Cost $50

Google is intending to offer $50 customisable modular smartphones by promptly one year from now. The organization is keen on taking a shot at Project Ara, an effort to create smartphones that  users can easily tweak or modify by swithing their parts as if they were Lego blocks.

Project Ara which began in late 2012 under subsidiary Motorola’s Advanced Technology.

Despite the fact that Google just has a couple of staffers dealing with Project Ara, the organization said it wants to finish a working model in the following few weeks. The objective is to have the ability to offer Project Ara modular phones to consumers by the first quarter of 2015.

Google said the first phones might have the capacity to connect with Wi-Fi and not 3G or 4G portable systems.The devices will use a backbone that diverse modules can connect with. The backbones will come in three sizes: mini, medium and jumbo.

Google is also said to offer the backbones while developers can create and sell the modules. Distinctive modules might incorporate batteries, cameras, screens and keyboards.

Google wanted to fundamentally accomplish for hardware what Android and other platforms has done for software. It meant lowering down the barrier to entry to such a degree to the point that several thouand developers instead of a few manufactureres could take interest and participate in the hardware space.

To get Project Ara making headway, Google declared it will hold an arrangement of developer conference not long from now- both at a physical location and online with the first to be held on April 15 to 16.
