The Android smartphone for people who are sick of Android smartphones - Yahoo News
Their first venture was an Android app, which provides a simple user interface for apps that are most-used in a device. Apparently, this particular app was downloaded 10,000 times. But this time around, they created a device instead of an app called Zilta. This Zilta smartphone will hit the store shelves by December 2014. The price of this device is set for 139, which roughly translates to US$189 and AU$201. The Zilta Android smartphone features a 5 inches screen, with a 960 x 540 pixels display resolution. The handset will run a forked version of the latest Android v4.4 OS.

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.
