SAN GRANDE, FREEDEMIA– Freedemian electronics company Zenergy released their first official line of computers and mobile devices on Monday. The line currently includes 6 devices, the Zeno (which comes as an all-n-one desktop or a traditional-style PC tower), the ZenoBook, the ZenoBook Lite (sort of a lightweight hybrid between the ZenoBook and the Zeno Pad), ZenoPad, ZenoPhone, and ZenoPhab. The devices are the first full quality non-beta devices that Zenergy has released, and the first that run on the newly improved ZComOS.
“It’s one of the most aesthetically pleasing operating systems we’ve seen in a while,” app developer Ravia commented. “It almost has that same wow factor that StepStone did when it was first released.”
Zenergy first announced the new line back in October 2015, though it had been in the works for years behind the scenes.
Zenergy has gone for the same “seamless experience” concept StepStone Technology has, with a standard UI across all computing devices (though phones especially have what one may call the “lite version”). The devices don’t actually navigate through the home “launch screen”, but through a modern-looking half-screen menu window that appears when you press either the built in Z button or click on the Z icon in the bottom left corner of the screen. (The Z Button is the default in phones, the Z icon is the default on laptops and desktops, and tablets can be adjusted to have the on screen Z Icon in addition to the Z button.) Essentially, this means your home menu is always accessible, no matter what app or program you’re in, in contrast to having to leave a program or move windows around to get back to it.
Some of the later Zenergy Beta models (such as the ZenergyPhone Beta 10) will be eligible for a software upgrade from ZComputeOS Beta 4.3 to ZComOS 1.0, but most of the older test models were not made to run the new system. Zenergy does plan on releasing one final update to ZComputeOS Beta (to be dubbed Beta 5 Final) as a final thank you to those who were early adaptors of the Zenergy computing line.
Zenergy also included a free, fully functional, official ZeeBoy emulator in every new device, as an homage to the days when Zenergy ruled handheld gaming. This may have been done in an effort to compete with MegamerGames‘ GamePhone SuperNova.
Zenergy’s market share is expected to grow dramatically in the near future as these devices hit the shelves. Currently Zenergy has about 1% of the Freedemian mobile device market, with Stepstone, Saehan Group, and Cyclo dominating.
Zenergy gaming fans will also be ecstatic to know that the new ZeeBoy Platinum and ZeeBox are coming out this June. The extent of their success may depend on the third party game offerings they’re able to attract to the platforms.
