INQ Mobile Preparing a Twitter Phone
INQ Mobile's chief executive confirmed to Reuters that the company is working to develop a new phone that targets users of the Twitter micro-blogging service. The phone would be pushed as a mass market device and will cost operators less than $140. Frank Meehan, chief executive of INQ, said that the phone would include an Internet-based Twitter client, but he didn't provide any more details about the phone. INQ already makes a handset known as the "Facebook phone" due to its integration with Facebook's services. The new Twitter phone should be available by the holiday shopping season, according to Meehan.
