The Verzo Kinzo- Another Kind of Android Smartphone

Everyone has heard of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the new Motorola Droid RAZR. But what about some lesser known Android smartphones? Verzo’s Kinzo is one of those unique smartphones. The device touts a slick black design, unique hardware, and an unique GUI. Notably, the phone has base instructions for a clean install of Android for those who don’t want to deal with the company’s VERZO GUI. It’s a nice touch, and hopefully we’ll be seeing more smartphones come with this option.
