Googles Project Ara modular smartphones could arrive early next year for as low as $50, reports Time. The companys Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) group — which is developing the project to make smartphones composed of small, swappable pieces of hardware — reportedly plans to finish a functioning prototype within weeks and begin preparation on a version for consumer sales beginning in the first quarter of 2015. While multiple phone models may be available from the start, in a deep dive with the Project Ara team, Time reveals that ATAP is focused on offering an extremely basic and low-cost option. Over time, ATAP believes owners of a $50 device will buy more add-ons and turn their phone into one thats much more capable.
