      Thanks for the link, I hadn’t seen that. Shame that Google’s dropped it, but if it’s got manufacturers thinking more about modularity, it may have done all the good work it was going to. A fully modular phone isn’t really necessary, just the ability to replace the parts that break or need to be upgraded most often.
