INQ’s Web 2.0 Phone


“The software – or more exactly the UI – is the key point now in selling any handset and thankfully INQ has listened. So, for what’s its worth the INQ1 has a 2.2in QVGA screen, HSDPA connectivity, a 3.2MP camera, microSD expansion slot to augment just 50MB of internal memory and pocket friendly dimensions of 97 x 47.6 x 14.4mm while it weighs a mere 110g. Now, the good stuff – and there’s a lot.

Running off a Qualcomm chipset with custom Brew operating system, the INQ1 has the best integration of social networking and communication tools this side of a BlackBerry or iPhone – scratch that, in many respects it is better than either.

For a start, Facebook, Skype, Twitter, YouTube, Bebo, eBay, Last FM, Microsoft Instant Messenger, Gmail, Google Maps are not only available on the handset but they run full time in the background, pre-fetching data and keeping users continuously connected. All run thin clients which can be accessed with or without signal (such as when on the Tube) and any notices written offline automatically sent when reception returns.

Taking this to the next level is a game changing contacts database where the INQ1’s contacts are seamlessly combined with those detected from these services. This means FaceBook, Twitter, Skype, Gmail, Yahoo, WLM contacts and more are merged grouping contacts with the same name or those with similar (ie, ‘Gordon Kelly’ and Gordon K’ would cause a prompt asking whether they should be merged or not). Consequently select any contact and you’ll have the option (where applicable) to either call, text, email, Facebook, IM, Twitter or Skype call (but not eBay) them, even their avatars and statuses are transposed. Brilliant”…. <More>
