Other manufacturers should consider competing with Motorola. More competition, more innovation!

That would be awesome. It'll be like the iPhone but with ultimate customization, for tecchier people and hopefully on Android's side!
Plot twist: This will run BB10 only.

I dont get how it will be like the iPhone in any one way, unless you mean overpriced. Hopefully not.

My bad. I meant that (hopefully) it'll be as popular as the iPhone so it gets the traction it deserves.

This could be absolutely epic if it works like they are saying it will.

Phonebloks is such a superb idea. I really think a modular phone could be hugely popular.

This would be the best thing since the Iphone came out which helped push smartphones into the everyday market. Now, if we can get it to carry multiple OS's that can be changed at any time would be ideal. Having the option of Android, Ios, Windows or BB10 would make this the ultimate phone.

iOS will never happen. No one wants BB10 to happen. Windows maybe but Microsoft has some pretty strict requirements. Android is the only real option
