Google’s Project Ara has attracted a lot of interest even when it was still an initiative of Motorola. This week, the search giant has officially released the Module Developers Kits for Project Ara that should help developers for creating components for the modular phone.

As with previous reports, the MDK confirms the three sizes of the modular phone – mini, medium and large. There will also be different physical layouts including touchscreen-only, QWERTY keyboard and even number pad layouts.

Google is said to be encouraging developers to build common modules first such as processors, display units, Wi-Fi chips and batteries to name a few. The search giant is also encouraging uniformity in Ara devices’ basic functionality by giving out guides to developers.

According to reports, Google plans to release several Ara MDKs this year and hold a series of conferences for developers. Ara phones are expected to hit retail stores by Q1 of 2015.
