Was the handspring a forerunner of the modular phone?

So I was thinking the other day about the Handspring series of devices and how their modular approach using the springboard modules is so similar to Phonebloks and the Ara project.

Handspring were pretty forward thinking in their design of the visor and its modules. I think if they'd stayed around and been allowed to develop their technology over that of the other PDA makers they would have done really well, and perhaps we'd be seeing the Handspring modular now.
