The INQ Chat 3G is the ultimate social tool which will leave PCs gathering dust on their desks. It makes mobile internet accessible to all.  As well as built-in Windows Live Messenger and Skype the INQ Chat 3G comes with proper Facebook and Twitter with the full range of functionality you’re used to on a PC. The phone’s personalised home screen widgets keep you in constant touch with your online world.

When what you want to say isn’t right for a Facebook message or a tweet, email it. Free mobile email is at the heart of the INQ Chat 3G – the phone is one of the few on the market to offer free push Gmail access so that your emails arrive in real time with no waiting or updating. It’s great to use and doesn’t require any fussy setting up. The INQ Chat 3G also integrates with other personal email services like Yahoo! and Hotmail.

And because you can run several apps at the same time, you can have an IM chat while you switch to check your Facebook, then flip to your email.

The fun isn’t all in the chatting though – the INQ Chat 3G has entertainment as well as communication covered with iTunes and Windows Media Player media syncing for PCs and Macs, letting you enjoy your music, pictures and video on your phone as well as your computer, The INQ Chat 3G can also act as a plug and play modem which gives your laptop wireless broadband access – add-ons start from just £10 for 1GB.

A range of customisable coloured backs are also available.

Nigel Field, Director of Devices says “The INQ Chat 3G is a fantastic example of a great value phone that does the internet really well.  With one touch access to Facebook, Twitter, Skype and Windows Live Messenger, the Chat reinforces 3 as the home of the mobile internet.”

INQ CEO Frank Meehan: “We’ve looked at what a lot of consumers want and haven’t been getting so far from mobile manufacturers – a well priced device built around the internet that does more than voice-and-text. The INQ Chat 3G does it simply and beautifully, with sharp design and packaging.”

“The internet is not an after-thought for us. We started off with the internet in our DNA when we set the company up a year ago. We have developed partnerships with the big internet brands and are delighted with how the INQ Chat 3G delivers the services consumers tell us they care about.”
