MWC: INQ poised for more handsets
INQ is expected to shed light on more phones, following the INQ1, this week at Mobile World Congress.
The handset manufacturer start-up is expected to show different form factors to its mass market phones built around social networking and community applications such as Facebook, MSN messenger and Skype.
INQ is also understood to be close to announcing deals with operators around the world, other than 3 (sister company under the umbrella of parent company, Hutchison Whampoa).
The manufacturer is attempting to convince operators in western Europe that it can attract younger customers who are avid users of sites such as Facebook on PCs, but are priced out of devices such as the Apple iPhone and BlackBerry Storm.
