Google is building its own consumer Android phone

Google is building its own consumer Android phone | web learning | Scoop.it
We've spent a lot of time this past year wondering if and when Google would bite the bullet and just build its own Android phone for consumers to take on the iPhone directly — there have been hints and leaks, but nothing real. And in true Google fashion, the reveal was nothing like what we expected — the company announced today that it's moving the ambitious Project Ara modular smartphone team out of the ATAP research lab and into its own proper unit within Google, under new hardware chief (and former Motorola president) Rick Osterloh. And a consumer Ara phone is coming in 2017 as well, which marks the first time Google has ever built its own phone hardware — the company's Nexus phones have been built by partners like Huawei, LG, and HTC.

Google showed off a working prototype version of Ara today, which lets you live-swap hardware modules like cameras and speakers onto a base frame which contains the core phone components — you can even say, "Okay, Google, eject the camera" to release modules, which is pretty cool. It has six modular slots — each one is generic, so you can put any module in any slot, and they're all linked up through new open standard called Unipro that can push 11.9 gigabits of data in both directions. (There's a bunch more details in this Wired piece from notable Verge expat David Pierce, which you should read.)

Ruby Rennie Panter's curator insight, May 12, 4:09 AM
Flashcards are very popular, although our current understanding of how learning happens shows that they have limited use. However, they could be helpful as part of a larger learning experience. Many learners have a lot of faith in being able to memorise things by using flashcards, so if it builds their confidence in some way there could also be value in that
