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 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.

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 review

 

Can INQ take on the BlackBerry range with a budget handset?

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

Overall the INQ Chat 3G is a real Jekyll and Hyde phone. On the one hand, the sheer amount of things it can do is astounding - Facebook, Twitter, Skype et al, and all for under £100. And it functions as a modem to boot - something we really like.

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

Is the budget Twitterphone trying to do too much?

Compact design ; Very low price ; Facebook and Skype integration ; Native Twitter client

Slow and sluggish UI ; Cramped keyboard ; Convoluted process to merge contacts with Facebook

The INQ Mini 3G is probably the best budget phone on the market at the moment, packing in more features than some phones three times its cost.

3 Mobile INQ Mini 3G mobile phone

 

A successor to the INQ1, 3 Mobile's INQ Mini 3G is an entry-level prepaid mobile phone that has access to social-networking features like Facebook, Tw...

Quirky and colourful design and interface, convenient switcher key, excellent home screen, great integration of social-networking apps

Largely plastic design, not the best keypad, UI is a little slow, no 3.5mm headphone jack, poor camera

3's INQ Mini 3G mobile phone is far from perfect, but it represents decent value for money. Multimedia features aren’t up to scratch and there are limitations at this price point, but the integration of social-networking features, particularly with...
