Facebook phone from 3
November 14, 2008
Mobile phone company 3 is hoping to capitalise on the success of Facebook with the release of a new handset in time for Christmas that integrates the social networking site with all the traditional functions of a mobile phone.
The INQ1 puts users in touch with their social networking circle at the touch of a button. The phone is aimed squarely at users who find “smartphones” such as the iPhone, Blackberry Storm and G1 too expensive, but still want to use social networking, e-mail and instant messaging as well as surf the mobile web.
