The handset will run a forked version of the latest Android v4.4 OS. It is worth mentioning that the Nokia X also runs on a forked Android version. The unique selling point of this device is the simplistic user interface. The overall screen will only contain six big icons for performing the routine every-day tasks. This includes icons for email, web browser, contacts, photos, messages, and one more for apps and settings.

Samsung makes loads of them. Sony’s cut the Ericsson ties but still is cranking out the Google-branded handsets. Then you’ve got Android-powered phones from Acer, LG, Huawei, Motorola, ZTE and many others, and while HTC has ceased the practice of releasing more phones than centipedes have shoes (they do wear them, you know) it’s still one of the more prominent Android manufacturers.

Best Android phone – which should you buy? | News | TechRadar
A link has been sent. Done The Android smartphone for people who are sick of Android smartphones By Ben Zigterman June 11, 2014 6:40 PM 0 shares View photo The Android smartphone for people who are sick of Android smartphones When Lari Numminen and Jukka Kekalainen set out to improve the user experience on Android , they did not expect to create an entire new phone. Instead, they initially built an Android app that would offera simple interface for launching your most-used apps. The app eventually was installed 10,000 times, but the developers realized that people still had to use Androids complex pre-installed apps in addition to their own. To solve this, they decided to create their own phone, which is called the Zilta and will be available in December for 139 (about $189) in Europe. The phone will run a forked version of Android 4.4 and features an extremely simple user interface. There are six big icons on the screen for the basic tasks nearly everyone uses on a smartphone: email, a web browser, contacts, photos, messages, and a sixth that brings users to more apps and settings.
