^^ Android is free.. Windows Mobile OS is not.. so I doubt it.. we might consider with Android, Ubuntu mobile, Firefox OS ..

Even then, its still EPIC multibooting Android, Ubuntu etc...
Too bad this phone will only get attention from geeks like us, not from the common person

The biggest strength of this phone is it's biggest obstacle. Due to the nature of the idea to last a phone years, major companies would never support it. Worse is that it may even try to discourage it by any means.

But that doesn't mean the idea can't become a reality even if for the Geek community. It's just that after the failure of crowd funding of Ubuntu *dream phone* its hard for me to believe such crowd funding can success.

^^ he is not looking for crowd funding.. he did say one company cannot do it on its own.

This is not the future at all . Who will want to buy the phone that looks like what everyone else is having ?

Not a practical design.

Only way to make a truly modular phone is to make a miniaturized IBM PC like architecture.
