The Czech-based company Verzo Technologies enters the smartphone market with the Verzo, a new Android smartphone. Designed by Novague, the Verzo will go on sale today at Kinzo’s website for the no-contract price of $459.
The Verzo Kinzo comes running a 1GHz processor and features a 4.3-inch display, 5-megapixel camera, 1530 mAh camera, internal memory of 512 MB with an included 8GB SD card (expandable up to 32GB), Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS. The Kinzo includes tri-band UMTS support, which means it’s compatible with AT&T’s network and quad-band GSM support.
In a press release, Kinzo admits that it did not want to build a phone that would be the slimmest, the best in performance or the most expensive,” but rather one that was completely open for users to continue to modify and make better through the building of additional apps and widgets.
“The Kinzo is coming to the market with a carefully selected mix of hardware, software, accessories and price, all of which gives you enough space to affect its future development,” the company says. “Together with the community we shall fill the Kinzo and all later Verzo models with widgets, applications and other tweaks to get Verzo to a place on the market where there will be no disdain. Come and build a new brand of smartphones with us.”
Verzo says its aim is to enter the smartphone market, develop and broaden the product base and become a publicly traded company on the American stock exchange.
