Motorola has been developing a prototype for a new modular cell phone where users can switch out different pieces of hardware at their own discretion. If a user that wants a better camera but doesn’t care too much about RAM they could spend more money buying a nice lens and less money on memory. Or, someone who has more money to spend could beef up their entire system to create a super phone. I believe motorola has made a huge ethical statement with this idea. It eliminates the idea of planned obsolescence when it comes to cell phone technology. If a piece of hardware fails for a user they can just replace it easily to make their phone last as long as they want it to. A user can have one base model for the next ten years and upgrade the pieces of hardware that they want to as more technology becomes available. Phone manufacturers make a lot of their money when people buy a new phone every year or two years and Motorola seems like it has made a move that is in the best interest for consumers too instead of just for themselves.
