INQ Chat 3G via Aircel

 

Aircel's INQ Chat 3G is a very affordable 3G handset ready for social networking but with slightly sluggish UI.

Hands-on review: 3's INQ Chat 3G – Twitter, Facebook, Skype and more

 

The updated device adopts a BlackBerry-esque form-factor in favor of the INQ1′s candybar, adding a full QWERTY keyboard to support a host of social messaging capabilities, including ‘push' email (via Gmail), Facebook access, Instant Messaging through...

On paper, there’s a tremendous amount of value packed into the INQ Chat 3G and for the most common apps and social web services, the phone has you covered. The built-in apps replicate almost exactly how I’ve set up my day-to-day and much more expensive...

INQ Mini 3G

 

It shares many features in common with the upcoming INQ Chat 3G, but the Mini 3G is a much simpler and more conventional device. There's a 2.2" 240 x 320 pixel display, a very basic 2 megapixel camera and 3.5G support, although there's no WiFi or GPS...

INQ Mini 3G - HardwareZone.com

 

The INQ Mini 3G is being billed as the ultimate social networking phone. So what about it separates this cell from the rest of the phones in the market? Dare to find out?

INQ Chat 3G - HardwareZone.com

 

To cater to our growing on-the-go social media needs, many mobile devices nowadays come pre-installed with apps supporting popular networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. The INQ Chat 3G is built firmly around these apps.

Consumer review by:

Not micro usb

 

Seems like it would be useful- if the plug-in fit

NOT a micro usb, you know, the charger that every phone in America uses now ; If it worked, the cord would still probably be too short

Consumer review by:

Too short

 

Extends/ retracts nicely

Too short, way too short

Expert review by:

INQ Chat 3G

 

Although designed by a relatively nascent company, the INQ Chat 3G has a good hardware line up and a decent sub-£100 price tag, making it a really intriguing prospect.

Native Twitter and Facebook client; Good battery life; Sub-£100 price tag

Slow to update; Light feel in the hand; Basic screen; Severe lag at times

The 2.4-inch screen is good enough for the task as well, coming in at QVGA resolution. It's not going to be amazing for video or anything like that, but it's wide enough to see all your tweets and the like on with ease

Social mobiling on a budget?

Social network integration, affordable, HSDPA

For those who want a compact and affordable phone, which offers the integration of the major social networks, then the INQ Mini 3G is well worth a look. But do try the keyboard as we found this the most annoying aspect of the device
