Engadget: ‘Project Ara Delayed Because Its Phones Keep Falling Apart’ ➝

Isn’t this the joke everyone made when they first heard about Project Ara? But seriously, I actually laughed out loud when I saw this headline.

Update: Turns out, this was just a joke. Although with the frequency in which I see battery covers fly across the floor when their corresponding Android phone is dropped, I’d say some phone makers’ drop test standards aren’t as high as they should be. Don’t be surprised if videos crop up showing how components fall out of the Ara phone on impact.

Have you ever watched someone drop their phone and the battery and battery cover fly off on impact? Imagine if every component on your phone could fall off in the same fashion when it hit the ground. That’s the only thing I can think of while I’m watching this video.
