Conclusion: It feels like INQ has handpicked some of the best things that Android has to offer – Facebook, Spotify, SwiftKey – and wrapped it up in an eye-catching and easy to use custom user interface. We think that the INQ Cloud Touch will be a hit with its intended target audience of young(ish) Facebook addicts. Those craving a powerhouse smartphone will probably want to look elsewhere – the 800 MHz processor and lack of support for higher end games and apps won't satisfy.
Excerpt: The INQ1 phone is acting just like a Palm Pre. Well, sort of. When the Pre was announced earlier this month, pundits, analysts and other blowhards were quick to praise Palm for integrating so many web-based applications in its savior device. What they failed to mention is that web-based apps on mobile devices already exist on other devices. Devices that are available. That you can buy. Right now.
Pros: Brightly hued, easy to use, easy-to-sync OS pairs perfectly with your Facebook account. Skype integration is thoughtful. Thoughtfully spaced keys make texting, entering URLs rather pleasant. Camera takes photos that are sharp enough to be a profile picture. Extremely cheap for an unlocked device.
Cons: Humdrum hardware punctuates novel OS. Not offered in the United States … yet. Battery life is clinically depressing when surfing the web, using Skype.
Excerpt: The INQ Cloud Touch is a new generation in social mobile from the small UK company who practically invented the connected mobile social experience before everyone else jumped on board. These days there is no shortage of social integration across all mobile platforms, Android especially. So do INQ have what it takes to redefine that social mobile experience again in their popularly-dubbed “Facebook phone?
Pros: Facebook integration, info key, affordable, direct access to Spotify via button
Cons: Some of INQ's features are begging for more functionality, the battery life is poor, and the screen isn't especially good, Wi-Fi iffy at times
Excerpt: L'idea del Facebook Phone ha sempre incontrato sostenitori e detrattori. Vantaggiosa o accidentata che sia, la strada dell'integrazione con il social network blu ormai è stata percorsa da diversi produttori, e anche se alcuni telefoni montano addirittura un tasto F dedicato , l'INQ Cloud Touch che abbiamo per le mani è uno degli smartphone che più fanno pappa e ciccia con l'universo social, e in particolare con la rete di Mark Zuckerberg.
