British cell phone maker INQ Mobile Ltd. has rolled out two new Androids - INQ Cloud Touch and INQ Cloud Q - for social networking.
The new phones enable people to use common Facebook interactions such as viewing photos and videos, chat, message, and check-in to their favorite businesses all from the home screen. The new devices offer comprehensive integration with the social networking site and also feature Spotify music service.
The INQ Cloud Touch, which will be available first in the UK in April, boasts of a 3.5 inch HGVA touchscreen, Android Froyo 2.2 platform, Qualcomm 7227 chipset 600MHz processor and 5 MP autofocus camera. INQ Cloud Q is a 2.6 inch Android 2.2 touch Qwerty and will be available in the third quarter at the Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy.
INQ says the new models deliver a fully live Facebook experience built around INQ’s Visual Media Feed.
Speed and simplicity of access to things you love is our DNA, so our next step is to make it even easier for people to experience the richness of Facebook – all from the homescreen, says INQ chief executive Frank Meehan.
INQ Cloud Touch and INQ Cloud Q feature all new apps for Facebook on mobile. The new apps leave behind the mobile paradigm of text based status updates and deliver a rich media feed to the homescreen.
The new models will be showcased next week at the Mobile World Congress trade show.
