I think this is what most here have wanted all along.If it pans out to be true,it could be a game changer.
But,in light of recent news of even more staff reductions @ MOTOROLA,I doubt the depth of the a la carte model is gonna run very deep.Most likely limited to memory/color options,perhaps a QWERTY & size option as well.Not much different than what we have today,including the "promise"
of one upgrade during the life cycle (read:not NEXUS).
More than likely,this "rumor" was started by MOTOROLA to attempt what the others did yesterday,steal some of SAMSUNGS' thunder & hold potential customers @ bay until they get their phone to market.
I do hope someone can deliver on this model,but,I'm not waiting around for it,as no matter what comes out,something is ALWAYS left on the table,keeping us coming back for more next time.
If BURGER KING can do it,so can the phone manufacturers:

Sorry,I couldn't resist,in light of last night's SGS IV event.
