“Today’s smartphones are too much of a handful, according to Israeli company Else: You either need to grab them with both hands and punch away at the keyboard with your thumbs, or you hold them with one hand and touch the screen with the other. However, Else’s Intuition software platform makes it possible to access all the functions, contacts and data in a phone with just one hand.” The company’s entire website is done in Flash. I’m not kidding.
Smartphone OS Leaves One Hand Free

Yeah, the website is bad taste.
However, the UI they provide looks familiar. I swear I’ve seen those pictures before (must have been at least a year ago though. (at Engadget maybe?))
I’ve been waiting for someone to invent a touchscreen user interface that was really easy to use with one hand (hint: Android isn’t). Probably this UI will be more vaporware than something else, though.
