Re: Maybe so
The SSD is a module. But they're so expensive you'd not bother replacing it.

There's a reason X86 is still around, it generally works well.
Itanium (or Itanic as it was jokingly called) just didn't perform well despite being an elegant design. With Linus saying they threw away all the good parts of their designs.
This will motivate many to investigate AMD or ARM. You certainly shouldn't reward such major incompetence with repeat business.
Pretty sure Intel will have devalued their offerings by ruining their reputation, they sure won't be changing a premium price for a while.
So please tell me where I can get a phone with 4800mAH battery.Just because one company got the idea wrong doesn't invalidate it.
I have a Moto Z with a clip on battery. This gives me enough battery life for about 2-3 days and makes the phone larger, but not bigger than an iPhone 3G. I personally loathe how phones are being made slimmer all the time to the detriment of usability and battery life, what use is your phone if the battery is dead?
The main issue with modularity is definitely that the quality of the add ons can't be too great as they'll be useless for the next phone you get.
LG's touchscreen phone?!?
Apple Newton, development started in 1987 and the product was released in 1993. It has many of the features of a modern smartphone and was released a year before the first smartphone (IBM Simon).
To develop the Newton Apple needed a low power mobile CPU and helped fund the development of it with ARM.
So the whole modern ARM smartphone world is thanks to ARM and Apple.
They're toast anyway simply because they can't create their own ideas any more.
Windows Phone strategy is just "Do what Apple do", so their platform is too restrictive and locked down.
Tablet computer strategy is "Try to do what Apple have done, but retain some Windows compatibility for enterprise".
Windows strategy is "Make Windows relevant as a tablet OS, screw the desktop users".
XBox strategy is "Shoot first, then see what Sony does, then copy Sony".
Clueless, unoriginal and more u-turns than David Cameron.
True, that's why many OSes defaulted to a nice blue background. Although there is evidence that blue makes your brain think it is daytime and so sleeping is affected.
