project ara delayed because its phones keep falling apart

Project Ara, the modular mobile phone from Google’s Advanced Technologies and Projects (ATAP) group, has hit some delays, and now we’re getting a hint as to what went wrong.

Supposedly the phones were coming apart when dropped, big surprise, but something that could be solved easily with a case.

This headline reads like rhetoric coming from the project to save face though. It’s likely that a more accurate statement would be, “Google cancels modular phone project, because it’s not a good idea.”
