INQ is claimed to be the first social mobile phone that put instant messaging, email, VoIP and social networking at the heart of the phone. Let’s take a look how social it is.
INQ Facebook Integration
Facebook for INQ is built right into the heart of the INQ. Facebook friends show up in the INQ contacts list. Messages, pokes and requests drop in the phone’s inbox. Keep up with every conversation, wherever you are.
You can see their latest photo and status, or message, post or poke them all directly from the phone’s contacts list. Staying connected never felt easier.
This is a feature I love most: INQ sends photos from your camera straight to Facebook. Receive a call from a Facebook friend and the INQ displays their latest Facebook profile picture. So if your friends have a new look, you’ll know before you speak to them.
Your Facebook newsfeed updates automatically on INQ, so you know what your friends are up to, see their latest photos and find out who’s friends with who.
Instant Messaging Integration
With INQ chatting on Windows Live Messenger is as easy as sending a text message. INQ shows you which Messenger friends are online, and notifies you whenever you receive new messages – whatever you’re doing.
You can also call or chat with friends on Skype straight from the contacts list – just like making a phone call.
INQ can have all your email pushed to you: immediate access to all your email – no need to wait. INQ supports most web based email services, including Hotmail, Google Mail and Yahoo! Mail. It’s also compatible with work email services such as Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Domino too.

The INQ Chat 3G was developed in response to consumer and operator demand for a qwerty-style keypad device from INQ. It has a new email client developed by INQ that incorporates free push Gmail – removing a cost for push mail typically borne by operators or passed on to consumers. The INQ Chat 3G comes complete with the expanded suite of INQ applications; Facebook, Skype, email, IM and Twitter.
The INQ Mini 3G is a slimline Social Mobile that offers Twitter, Facebook, IM, Skype and web-based email services like Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail and GMail. It brings the usability that INQ is known for to a new form factor. Like the INQ Chat, the INQ Mini offers impressive capability at a fraction of the price of other application-rich devices.
