Its a really great idea but a weird one too.

But do you really need to upgrade modules on your phone? And how expensive will they be. So this will be an Android phone also?

I see this being a colossal failure. I mean look at the issues we still have with computers when it comes to having the ability to change out parts with drivers, compatibility issues with software, and compatibility issues with other pieces of hardware. Or a company not providing updated drivers for their hardware. The people behind this project have yet to discuss those glaring issues. On a desktop they are easy to fix, I cannot imagine the pain of going through something like that with a phone.

I predict app crashes because 2 or more pieces of hardware don't work fully together.

Get ready for Driver sweeper for phones.

Your phone is now basically a computer so why can they be solved on a pc but not a phone?

They've already done a lot in a short time frame, it's promising stuff.
