Don’t expect to see Project Ara until next year

Many are wondering when and where Project Ara will end up now that the planned market pilot in Puerto Rico has been shelved. This week, as promised, an update was provided by Google’s Advanced Technology & Projects (ATAP) group on the status of Project Ara. The team behind Project Ara commented when and where we should expect to see modular phones in public.

The new plan is for the team to evaluate various locations throughout the United States before actually launching Project Ara anywhere in the world. The “Lots of iterations” phrase seems like Project Ara has hit a sizable speed bump, even more so because the rest of 2015 is off the table.
