Ehh I'm not so sure, it is possible. However standards would have to be set, and the pins shown in the concept wouldn't allow enough interconnects but that has a simple solution, However the idea is possible. As newer technology came out the system board could be swapped out as well.
It more than likely wouldn't be as modular as they want you to believe but this can be done to an extent.
Looks at a typical phones system board. the "external parts" generally have industry standard connections. There are multiple pins on each interconnect but relatively few "plugs" total.
I don't forsee multiple manufactures taking this though. I feel it would only be possible if 1 manufacturer took the idea and ran with it.

You would need supported drivers for each component. We cannot even get that today.
Actually, T-Mobile and Verizon have new programs that do just that.... for a fee.
Thats why it would only really work with 1 manufacturer. I would like to see the Canonical guys do this though.
If it's one OEM then they would have the drivers packaged and ready for install when they released the updated components. No different than swapping out hardware in a desktop then installing drivers.Edited by PappaSmurfsHarem - 9/11/13 at 2:32pm
