Re: Disaggregating the smart phone...
I'm looking forward to finding out whether Google can make modularity competitive on price. I assume that having multiple components magnifies cost, since each module needs to show a profit. With a traditional phone, there's only one profit margin to consider.

Disaggregating the smart phone...
The  smart phone is so smart because it uses a mobile computer for functions that have little to do with phone messaging. Just as these functions were gathered together into a market leading iPhone, they could be disaggregated into a set of devices, discreetely connected together by one operating system, and using the phone's display and keyboard. That way, you could talk to someone at your destination at the same time you were using GPS to find it. Project Ara is most interesting, to me.
