INQ Mobile is hoping to launch its Twitter phone in time for Christmas. How thoughtful. It’ll cost operators less than $140 and use an integrated internet-based Twitter client such that all tweets will come out of the user’s data package.
The low cost social networking handset manufacturer has made such a storming success of their first mobiles that only the iPhone can compare in terms of how often consumers have used them to go online. Sixty-five per cent of all INQ phone customers contact Facebook on a regular basis and 50% are the same with Windows Messenger.
It’s no surprise that INQ is looking to stay ahead of the pack and there’s no doubt that, right now, Twitter is the place to be. I wonder if it’ll be all blue bird and clouds branded?
