New handsets from debut manufacturer INQ are to feature an eBay application and an additional social network.
The new company, a division of 3 parent company Hutchison Whampoa, debuted its INQ1 social networking handset last year, featuring Facebook and Skype. It debuted on 3, but INQ is planning to rollout later devices on other networks.
INQ marketing and strategy director Jeff Taylor said: “We’re actively talking to carriers around the world for our upcoming range of devices. We’ve been thrilled with the response.”
