New review looks at "social networking phone"

16 January 2009 — 2:19 PM

The latest phone from 3 has been tested and rated by one online electronics resource this week.

Billed by the network as "the world's most advanced social networking phone" when it was announced last month, Trusted Reviews' Sandra Vogel has offered a first look at the new INQ1.

She states that the handset is the fruit borne of a partnership between 3 and its manufacturing arm Hutchison Whampoa, adding that this has resulted in a model that "as a first effort … is impressive".

The INQ1 is available on contract for free with a £15 monthly tariff that includes unlimited web access and texts, easy connection to sites such as Facebook and 75 minutes of any network calls.

Those looking to recycle mobile phones to raise cash for a new model may also be interested to hear the INQ1 has been made available on pay-as-you-go.

Equipped with a 50MB memory, which can be expanded via its microSD card slot, the gadget also boasts a 3.2-megapixel camera.

"This is a nicely constructed slider with a fairly good range of apps on offer and two very enticing special tariffs," Ms Vogel concludes.
