Details on the much-whispered, INQ-produced Facebook phone are pretty thin on the ground, with the bods at Facebook not even confirming such a project exists. However, thanks to a bit of digging by the folks at unwiredview.com, we have, at least, an outline of what to expect.
First off, the name: it's apparently not the "Facebook phone", but the "INQ Cloud Touch". As of yet there are no specs to speak of, just this leaked description from the Bluetooth Special Interest Group:
"INQ Cloud Touch is an Android smartphone built to make messaging faster and smarter. It's designed around the way people naturally communicate and has Facebook built into its core. The homescreen features multiple entry points to different Facebook functions, while a dynamic widget displays a feed of status updates, albums, videos and photos."
Not a lot to go on, but it sounds like we can expect more of an INQ mobile with a Facebook-centric UI than a balls-out, Facebook logo-sporting handset. More details as they emerge.
Could we be looking at just a more Facebook-centric UI than a balls-out Facebook branding-bearing blower? Let us know via e-mail or on the T3 Twitter feed.
