While Android has its strengths, I am not a fan of the Android user interface or of its resource hogging. The two might be tied together; who knows?
A Europe-based company believe that they have the answer to Android’s less-than-inspiring UI. A quote from them in introducing Verzo UI:
We are not the only developer of mobile phones in the world, who was not completely satisfied with the graphics of the Android OS. The difference lies in the approach and the final processing. As with the outer design of the phone, so with the VERZO GUI we were thinking it through carefully, while focusing on functionality and originality, neatness. We have examined every original graphic element and its placement within the Android system and if it did not seem fit or well placed, it has been notably modified.
We have dreamt of the most amazing graphic interface for mobile phones with Android OS available on the market and even though we have managed to make most of those ideas come true, only your reactions can tell us if we were right.
Yes; only user reactions can tell – and honestly, I would love to play with this.
Verzo UI will be introduced on the Kinzo Android smartphone. A brief specs sheet:
- 4.3-inch, 800 x 480 resolution, TFT LCD
- 5 megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash
- Single-core 1GHz TI OMAP 3630 processor with PowerVR SGX 530 graphics
- 512MB RAM
- 1,590mAh battery
As you can see, its not a top-specified robot, but the argument seems to be that with Verzo UI, performance and user experience is optimised and so not needing top specs.
