According to reports from Engadget the smartphone is almost ready, which could be go on sale form Moto Maker.
Back in October, Motorola announced that it is working on the Phonebloks concept of a modular smartphone called Project Ara.
Today, Dennis Woodside, CEO of Motorola confirmed in a Google+ hangout that the prototype of Ara is “pretty close” to being completed and that a final product — while still not due for a long time — could eventually make its way to the Moto Maker.
The company is also inviting those who are interested in the project to sign up and help shape the future of the project by completing missions which aim to get consumers creating ideas for things like sensors that could be added to the phone.
