Social Networking Phones

With the news that Facebook has crossed the 300 million users mark we look at the latest handsets that are perfect for those who can’t stand being away from their favourite social networking sites for more than 5 minutes!


INQ1 Social Networking Phone

The INQ1 was recently given the honor of the best mobile handset award at the GSMA awards and there are many great reasons why. The INQ1 is dedicated to social networking  and is designed to keep you in touch with your friends wherever you are. Facebook, Skype and Windows Live Messenger are always connected to make sure you never miss a thing. A little feature that I love is that you can merge your contacts from Facebook, Skype and Windows Live Messenger which means that when you receive a call from a Facebook friend the INQ1 displays their latest facebook profile picture. The fantastic bit about this phone is the price. With an RRP of only £79.99 and some great contracts that include unlimited browsing, this handset really is great for those who don’t want to spend all of their pocket money at once.

Coming Soon…

Due for release at the end of September are two great social networking phones that are going to give the INQ1 a run for it’s money. The Samsung S3650 Corby is made for those who love to customize their gadgets and ensure they never miss out on the latest gossip on Facebook. The distinctly shaped Corby comes with two extra ‘Fashion Jackets’ which are bright interchangeable rear covers to make sure you don’t get bored of your cool handset to easily. Upload photos and videos directly to YouTube, Flickr and Picasa and update your status on all your favourite social networking sites with ease on the 2.8 inch touchscreen. Also due for release soon is the Nokia 7705 Twist which allows you to twist and turn your handset in all kinds of directions on a chassis that neatly packs together to form a nice little pocket friendly handset. The phone features a full QWERTY keyboard, 3 mega pixel camera and support from email, IM, MMS and SMS. This cute little social networking phone also allows you to customise your handset for incoming calls with its glowing light ring that changes colour depending on who is calling.

These three handsets are perfect is you love to network on the go and the best bit is… they are super affordable!
