Life in the sun

 
Android screens can be almost impossible to read in bright sunlight. YOTAPHONE’s EPD screen is perfectly readable even in the brightest sunshine: fiction, Facebook, Twitter, news, RSS-feeds, blogs, mail, messaging and absolutely everything else.

YotaCover. It’s personal, actually

Or choose an image from YotaCast, a cornucopia of art, design, photos and inspiring quotations from the wisest guys on the planet. It's up to you.
