Submission + - Could Google's $50 Project Ara Device Change the Smartphone Market Forever?->

concertina226 writes: While the cost of the unusual modular technology and the magnets might make Ara seem more expensive, Google says that this means the user can start with a really plain, simple phone, even a device that is Wi-Fi only, that would cost only $50 to make, and then over time, save up towards purchasing components they want in their phone, such as a camera.

In a sense, Google is really challenging the traditional handset manufacturers, the likes of Samsung, HTC and Nokia, who make most of their money by building and manufacturing phones that come with everything the consumer could possibly need.
