Facebook phone passing through Bluetooth SIG… Maybe

| January 11, 2011 | Reply

Just when you thought Facebook was everywhere… now it looks like they soon will be! According to a filing over at the Bluetooth SIG, Phone maker INQ will be bringing to market its INQ Cloud Touch touting “Facebook built into its core”! Mr. Zuckerberg has denied multiple times that they were not working on any type of Facebook phone but this points in the other direction. The phone…

“is an Android smart phone built to make messaging faster and smarter. It’s designed around the way people naturally communicate and has Facebook built into its core. The home screen features multiple entry points to different Facebook functions, while a dynamic widget displays a feed of status updates, albums, videos and photos.” Sounds interesting since it’s based on Android. Still no word from Zuckerberg or Facebook and as Droid Life states INQ is very social media focused and maybe over stating the Facebook at its core statement. Only time will tell but this filing is defiantly something to take note of.

Would you buy a Facebook phone? Think it will do well with all the new phones coming to market the first half of this year? Drop us a comment below and let us know.

The INQ Cloud Touch is the new Facebook phone?  According to a filing with Bluetooth SIG that’s exactly what the current name is being referenced as.  INQ Mobile has been the manufacturer of the phone since this thing was first rumored, so this doesn’t come as a complete surprise, well except for the fact that Zuckerberg denied that they were working on one.  Or are they working on two?  Maybe a QWERTY version and an all-touch screen version?  And yep, it’ll be Android-based.

Here is the filing:

The homescreen features multiple entry points to different Facebook functions, while a dynamic widget displays a feed of status updates, albums, videos and photos.

Sounds like a lot of Facebook, but INQ is also known as being a social guru, so maybe they are just overdoing their description a little?

Anyone interested?  I’m…not.
