This concept idea originally came from the idea of building custom computers from their base components. A huge community of technology enthusiasts is familiar with the process of picking a computer’s processor, graphics card, motherboard, etc. to fit a budget and a purpose. What if this type of flexibility was available in mobile phone technology?
While mobile or tablet internals may not offer the same flexibility that we’d like to have in the externals, it’s a pretty neat concept to think about considering how far both mobile phones and desktop computers have come in the past decade. Even if full customization isn’t available the way it is described in the above video anytime soon, think of the possibilities of a simple hardware modification in a current generation devices like a RAM upgrade.
What do you think? Is this a realistic expectation in the next, say, 5 years of rapidly improving mobile device technology? Your comments are appreciated!
