Modular Phones - The Next Big Thing

You might have heard about this.. 
Modular Phones..!!
If succeeded they'll certainly be the next big thing like the Androids..

Almost everyone has a smartphone today .. The choice of the phone entirely depends on the individuals' need.

It may be due to the Camera quality or Battery Life or RAM or any other specification, that one wishes to buy the particular phone.

But have you wondered, why can't there be a phone which can contain all the best specs assembled.
The answer is Modular Phone.

Modular Phones are designed in such a way that all the components are independent of the other but connected to the central module which controls the skeleton

This could mean that you can get the components as per your need and make it your desired phone.

If some hardware goes wrong, you could well replace that part alone. No need to worry.

The major advantage is that , only one luxury phone with the best hardware will satisfy the entire family's need. Whoever is in need of a particular hardware can make use of that.

The idea actually came from an Artist which Motorola bought. Motorola later was bought by Google and now Google has been developing the idea.

The project has been named "Project Ara". Google for more information on that project.

The first model is expected to be out by early 2015. The lower end configuration will be priced $50 while the higher end at $500.

This is still a gamble, but if it does well, it will be the next big thing for sure..!!

Droid & Me...!

Android - The latest trending mobile OS that has revolutionized the world with its amazing performance ..
Click to know more about android..! Just a brief note on my experience with Android.

           Since I was very much attracted to android, I was eager to create apps and know how the stuffs actually work. After studying the basics, I was fascinated. That was the moment I began to write apps.

          There was a need for me to have an app of my own to keep track of all the classes I bunk. Also I needed to learn how to develop an android app. The result was Bunkdance. It was a simple app that keeps track of the number of classes bunked. It was limited to my subjects in that semester alone. Yet, it was really cool to use my own app and the happiness that I experienced when people used my app was just inexpressible.

 So thought, why not create a generalized version of the app so that everyone can make use of it. 

          Bunkster was the generalized version of Bunkdance and it can be customized. It allowed users to chose the no of subjects they have, change the name of each subject and have a look at the total bunks that they have made. It crossed 200 downloads. Though it was very few in number, i was pleased.

Slowly this became my passion and started writing more apps, like Virtuoso14 - the app for my department function and MyLogger - to keep track of the no of hours spent for an activity (might be your work at office , gym, training, etc)
