This is one of those fun little news bits where we don’t have a phone to display – that’s right, it’s pure vaporware at this point – but INQ Mobile has announced that they will use the Android OS as their platform for some new smartphone offerings on their network. INQ is known for creating a social networking-centric experience on their mobile phones, namely with Facebook.
In a recent interview with PCMag.com, INQ CEO Frank Meehan indicated that a highly-customized Facebook smartphone, based on Android, would be offered in 2010. How much will these phones cost? Mr. Meehan is quoted as saying that the pricing range should be around $79-99-199 on two-year-contract range.” Android is a stable, inexpensive, and customizable platform for INQ to take advantage of for their new smartphones. Hopefully we will see something solid soon, and when we do, we’ll report on it right here.
