The company is delaying the launch of Project Ara
Those in the know say that modular smart phones are the future. It just turns out the future is going to be a little later than we thought.
Google’s [fortune-stock symbol=”GOOG”] modular smart phone, being developed under the name Project Ara, was supposed to launched as a pilot project in Puerto Rico this year. But in a series of tweets, the folks at Project Ara has indicated that those plans might have changed.
The delay comes just as Google is undertaking a huge organizational change, placing its divisions under a holding company called “Alphabet.”
Tech enthusiasts are excited about the arrival of a modular smartphone, which, would allow users to switch out hardware components like cameras, batteries, sensors and memory. The team promised to give more updates on Project Ara’s future next week.
