Google’s Project Ara is honestly the biggest thing that I am looking forward to being released in the near future, a modular phone, it will allow users to simply swap out components on the device, with new or different ones when needed, meaning there will no longer be a need to pick up an entirely new phone.
And now it seems that the launch by be a little closer than originally thought, with Paul Eremenko (the head of Project Ara) stating at Google’s first Project Ara developer conference at the Computer History Museum, that they expect to ship the device as early as January 2015.
The device will be called the Gray phone according to Eremenko, who explained that ‘It’s called the Gray Phone because it’s meant to be drab gray to get people to customize it.”
Project Ara is also said to go on sale for around $50 when it launches, however pricing is still yet to be confirmed, and there are currently no details on the components themselves.
