Design-conscious Verzo Kinzo Android phone rolled out: challenges the “big ones”

Design-conscious Verzo Kinzo Android phone rolled out: challenges the “big ones”
Most of you probably have never heard about the Kinzo, an Android handset made by Czech-American Verzo, a newcomer to the smartphone scene, but the Kinzo definitely has the design to turn some eyes. It also runs on heavily customized Android Froyo in an attempt to be different and lure you into spending some $459 (420 euro). That’s the off-contract price of the Kinzo which is being sold via the company’s website.

The biggest idea behind Verzo’s handset however is not just the design. Dubbed a “community-driven smartphone,” it comes with TellMe, a special app that allows you to communicate with the people who made it, and the most requested changes are promised to appear in software updates. That alone seems like a huge promise, but we’re yet to see how the company delivers on it.

When it comes to pure specs, the Kinzo is mid-of-the-road and won’t surprise you with groundbreaking stuff. The Kinzo has a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive display and there’s a solid single-core 1GHz TI OMAP3630 processor and 512MB of RAM. When it comes to connectivity, you’re treated with quad-band GSM supports and tri-band UMTS, along with Wi-Fi b/g and Bluetooth. A 5-megapixel auto-focus rear camera and a VGA front snapper round up the package.

The make it or break it feature we’re still looking forward to know about is support for the Android Market. We’ll update you on that as soon as we have the information, but in the meantime check out the promo video and sweet PR talk for all the details below.
