INQ Cloud Touch ‘Facebook Phone’ Features Shown Off (Video)
The INQ Cloud Touch, also known as the “Facebook phone” got WiFi certified — that is, lacking WiFi standard 802.11n — since we first brought you the news of its existence back in mid-January, with a recent hands-on with the device itself.
Having invited INQ channel manager Andrew Bennet over, TechCrunch has posted a video showing off the INQ Cloud Touch, which is basically an Android smartphone with a lot of Facebook-oriented “widgets” — if you like. News feeds and status updates and all the rest will be brought to your smartphone and the integration is more content oriented, rather than being based on the people posting it.
The UI is also Facebook-centric featuring four main buttons at the top, namely People, Events, Notifications, and Places which are pretty self-explanatory, in addition to the Chat button at the bottom which gives you the possibility to IM. On the non-Facebook side, INQ have replaced the Android media player with Spotify.
It should be out internationally in May and later this year in the US and the price tag could be anywhere as low as $50 on contract to somewhere around $250 upfront. Check out the video below and let us know of your thoughts both on its looks as well as functionality and features.
