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.

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 styling is simple but functional, the specs are close to the top of the range in the world of Android, and the price is stunning.
