The tech savvy smartphone users and all the geeks out there have already witnessed the latest and the greatest of the smartphone technologies so far. But what Motorola started in 2013 is a technology that everyone will be curious about, especially the ones who love smartphones.
The Google owned Motorola last year announced a revolutionary project called "Ara" which deals with a modular phone. In ordinary words, this means that this phone can be modified according to the users requirements. The smartphone would be made by assembling a number of modular components like a separate camera module, graphic module and others as well. Thus if you would need a better camera you could easily change to a better camera module and go for a photo-shoot session. It is similar to the concept of Phoneblok.
It should be noted that Motorola was sold to Lenovo couple of weeks back but the Project Ara is still under Google. Now the Mountain View based software giant has announced saying that the Ara Developers Conference will be scheduled in April. To be more precise, April 15 and April 16 are said to be the day we might be looking at. Google uses a tagline for Project Ara as: "Designed exclusively for 6 billion people."
The good news is that the conference will be held online which means we'll be able to watch it via live stream. The conference will basically be focused on the alpha release of the Ara Module Developers' Kit (MDK). According to Google, the MDK should be released online in April as "a free and open platform specification and reference implementation that contains everything you need to develop an Ara module."
