Essentially you plug all the cell phone components into a backplane, similar to how building a desktop PC works. The idea is that, allegedly, when the device breaks, it's only one thing that breaks. So you just replace it and be on your merry way. Sounds great right?
Except with the concept they're showing, it's almost the same building a custom desktop and then some. Their idea of a backplane that you can just plug stuff in and work won't because signals need to be properly routed, unless you're forced to stick with parts being in a certain place. Plus, even though I feel building a PC is easy and it's not because I've built plenty, but because it basically follows the rule "if it doesn't fit, it doesn't go there", people still manage to screw it up. What makes me think people won't take their shiny new upgrade and break it because they were jamming it wrong?
