UK provider 3 adds INQ Mini 3G phone to lineup
The Mini 3G handset introduced by INQ earlier this summer is now being offered by wireless provider 3. The candybar handset is meant for younger owners heavily involved in social networking, as it can be customized with body covers in eight different colors and has shortcuts for access to Facebook, IM programs, Skype and Twitter.
Prices range from free when ordered with a wireless plan that costs the equivalent of $24 per month or $96 on a pay-as-you-go scheme. The plan includes Internet access, unlimited calling to three numbers, and 75 anytime minutes.
The INQ Mini 3G has a 2.2-inch, 320x240 display and a 2-megapixel camera. There is just 100MB of internal memory, though it's expandable via an 8GB memory card slot. It can sync with either iTunes or Windows Media Player through a third-party application. [via PocketLint]
