New INQ Handsets Offer Twitter And iTunes Sync
inqminichatIf you like your phones to come cheap and socially networked, then you’re going to love the new handsets from INQ. Both the INQ Chat and INQ Mini will have Twitter integrated into the OS, much like Facebook was in the INQ1, and will use DVD Jon’s Doubletwist software to offer iTunes syncing.

The INQ Chat looks a bit like a Blackberry clone, with a full QWERTY keypad and a 3.2MP camera, while the INQ Mini is a smaller candybar handset with a 2MP snapper.

The Twitter integration will work exactly like the Facebook integration on the INQ1 , in that you will remained logged in and be able to follow status updates directly on the main screen. Both these phones will also integrate with Facebook and Skype as well.

iTunes syncing will be done using Doubletwist, although if iTunes isn’t your thing, you can also sync them with Windows Media Player.

According to a local 3 spokesperson, they’re hoping to release the phone in Australia around October/November. And if the original INQ1 was any indication, that’s going to make them an extremely hot item for all the social network-lovin’ kids this Christmas…
