The Android Smartphone For People Who Are Sick Of Android Smartphones - Yahoo News 2

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. When you look at it, the working principle of our device is entirely built around the law of the vital few (aka the Pareto principle), where the majority of the effects comes from the fewest causes, Artem Klimkin, Ziltas marketing manager, told Fast Company. This is the reason Ziltas home display has only six buttons, which users can configure to suit 80% of their demands. After researching over 15 factories, they eventually found a manufacturer based in Shenzhen, China, to make the Zilta phones.

Svpeng also did something similar with the Google Play store. When a user with a Svpeng-infected phone tapped the Google Play app, Svpeng launched an overlay designed to look like an authentic part of the app, which asked users to « re-enter » credit-card numbers or other financial information. But that’s wasn’t all. Early in 2014, Svpeng decided that being a banking Trojan just wasn’t adequate to express its full identity. Svpeng now incorporates ransomware features specific to « police Trojans. » In those variants, Svpeng would replace the regular Android screen with a message, allegedly from local law enforcement, claiming that the phone’s owner had been caught viewing child pornography and would need to pay a fine of $500 in order to unlock the phone. Soon after that, reports Kaspersky, Svpeng’s creators decided to spin off its ransomware component into an entirely separate piece of malware.
