The real challenge for project ara isn't consumer need, it's distribution.

It'll be interesting to see if they put 'proper' resources behind this unlike some of their other half-hearted efforts recently ...

The key for any disruptive product is to first establish itself in foothold markets. Google Glass may have passed that test.

While Samsung and Apple are busy throwing stones at each other like kids. Xiaomi is working hard to dislodge them. I see Xiaomi and its fellow Chineese manufacturers dominating the top 10 in about 5 years from now

The argument laid out by Apple's salesforce is surprisingly accurate. Although, Phil Schiller's reaction shows that Apple executives remain in denial.
The planning document was introduced Friday in the Apple-Samsung trial.

Samsung's smartphone profits are in decline, while component profits are rising. Clear sign of value shift.
Samsung Electronics Co., the world’s biggest maker of smartphones, posted its second straight decline in quarterly profit as stalling demand lowers prices for Galaxy devices and components.

Comparing the business models followed by today's messaging apps and instant messaging clients from the dot-com era leads me to a single conclusion -- we are not in a tech bubble.

This is impressive. Xiaomi's devices are the only non-Apple/Samsung ones on the global top 10 list.
 
Xiaomi in Top 10

According to Hong Kong's Counterpoint Research, two of Xiaomi's devices were in the top 10 list of most sold smartphone models around the world in February of 2014.

Even though these rankings may or may not be super accurate, we're really excited considering that the vast majority of Xiaomi's volume is still in Mainland China, whereas all the other models in the ranking are global hits.  Lots of work ahead!
