+1 I realize people make mistakes but yikes.did this guy (Armasu) even read his own article or am I missing something. the first paragraph states the cpu is not swappable then he goes on to state in the second paragraph" If you need the highest-end mobile processor out there, for example, you can just buy that processor module and upgrade the handset with it".
the main reason I switch phones would be for the newer processors. I don't care about switching my wifi adapter. new ram or camera would be nice but my phone already lets me switch battery and storage.
Good call, my apologies. Has a "cold swappable" cpu for mobiles ever existed before this? Not saying i was right at all, but i took "hot swappable" to mean swappable in general, never thinking that it was even possible to swap out the CPU, hot or cold.zdaggs/Augray37: The write didn't say that CPU is not swappable, rather, not hot-swappable.
"the Ara platform will be able to hot-swap almost any component with the exception of the CPU and display."
This suggests that you may swap the processor module when the system power is off, so cold-swappable.
