Google scraps Project Ara’s Puerto Rico pilot program

Back in January this year, Google announced that the Caribbean country of Puerto Rico will be the first test market for its Project Ara modular smartphone. However, the company has now said that they are re-routing their “Market Pilot” (as they call it).

While there was no word on the reason behind the decision to change the location as well as the new initial test market, the company made it clear that they are not saying a permanent goodbye to Puerto Rico. In a separate tweet, the Project Ara team also said that further details on the matter will be announced sometime next week.

If you aren’t in the know, Puerto Rico was initially chosen due to its high percentage of mobile internet usage, providing the company optimum testing ground for the new platform.
