Kudos to the Microsoft designers. They have filed a patent that enables future Windows Phones to have Hot Swappable parts, of course apart from the memory cards.

According to Engadget

A new patent from Microsoft is exploring the possibility, showing off a concept smartphone with a sliding modular bay. Tired of that keyboard? Replace it with a gamepad, or a life-giving battery pack. According to the patent claims, some of the modular components would even function wirelessly, citing a touchscreen module which doubles as a wireless handset or a media remote.
