ImasD, the Spanish company from Valencia, specializes in integrating modular technology for electronic devices. It has been working on its innovative Click ARM (Advanced Removable Modules) modular platform that gives users flexibility in moulding their own devices by configuring various modules created for the platform and standard mini PCI express modules.
Right before MWC 2015 in Barcelona the company announced its partnership agreement with a Finnish start-up, Circular Devices, that is working on PuzzlePhone platform comparable to Google’s Ara that we saw at the Developers Conference in Singapore earlier in January.
During the tech event in Barcelona it presented the world’s first modular tablet Click-ARM One. The device will go on sale later this year, June to September, according to insider sources, and will be limited to 1,000 at a cost of €289 a piece. You too can become a proud owner of the tablet by ordering yours here. One of the apparent advantages is that you can customize it according to your own needs and wishes.
The out of the box model will come loaded with CK-HUB 101 motherboard with two USBs, HDMI output, Bluetooth 4.0 and dual-band Wi-Fi. The CK-Core module is equipped with Samsung Exynos 4412 processor, 2GB of DDR3 memory and the power micro-controller whereas another CK module offers 16 GB of storage. On top of these niceties there’s a replaceable multi-touch 10.1” screen with 1280 x 800 resolution.
The company prides itself on designing, manufacturing and assembling its devices in Spain. It made itself clear by stressing out that Click ARM is an open hardware. It will be available for the majority of manufacturers who have a chance of creating their own tablet-compatible modules.
