Modular phone [DenholmRicshaw, Jan 24 2011]
||Done this. With my Motorola SlimLite in the latter
years of the 90s. It was in my jacket inside pocket
and smashed apart whilst navigating the corner of
a banister at the bottom of a stairway that
encouraged swinging around rapidly. Then I did it
again a few weeks later. Both screws at the
bottom of the case were smashed from their
mounts, so after that it would have a habit of
turning into a self-assembly kit at a moments
notice, down the pub. This one preceded my
StarTac 130, which used the same battery, which
was handy as the 130 could hardly do a whole day
on just one.
||I this will also help in trouble shooting at consumer level.
||Will it come with a CE/FCC certification sticker ?
||Modu has something higher level - see link
||for startac read blu-tack!
||sometimes we have to throw away cellphone just because keypad stoped working, may be due to dust or coffee-spill. In above case, replace only keypad, just like we change battery.
