INQ1 handset coming to 3

European wireless provider 3 announced it will soon launch its INQ1 handset, integrating Facebook by delivering alerts and synchronizing contacts with their Facebook profiles. The handset will also pair existing contacts with their respective Skype and Windows Live Messenger accounts. The data network connected handset is thus able to replace a user's PC for chat and social interaction, and also complement it thanks to its ability to act as a plug and play modem for notebook PCs.

The phone uses a 2.2-inch screen with 320x240 resolution and has a 3.2-megapixel camera. It has 50MB of internal memory, along with support for memory cards up to 4GB in size. The browser will rotate into a landscape view thanks to a built-in gyroscope when the phone is rotated horizontally.

The INQ, thus far available in silver only, was developed by 3 owner Hutchinson, though no pricing information nor specific release dates have been announced. It is expected to cost under 99 without a contract, which is the equivalent of about $150.
