In the early dev stages, I was hoping that it would be made real; Google was behind it, but the Google glass thing has kinda disappeared, and I figured this would too. But a roadmap with a release this year makes me think differently. Kudos, Google.
I'm worried we're going to get a bunch of proprietary hardware modules that can only be used by proprietary apps. Someone please give me a reason to think otherwise.
Also, what's the max bandwidth supported by UniPro or whatever bus they're using? I read about a GPU module, but it seems to me that the communication speed is probably much slower than that of GPUs integrated with the CPU. Same goes for RAM modules.
its a smart move to do this in PR. Since they are using two local carriers (claro is latin american, but its local in US) they have a contained environment for research. There will be less confusion, less people buying it from around the US trying to activate it on a big carrier. in short, less headaches and scams.
Cant wait to see the hippie trucks in the area when they arrive xD
I have been skeptical since the first concepts and still am. There's a myriad if issues from technical ones to supply chain ones to consumer ones that I won't list and people here are probably already aware of.
