INQ1

INQ boasts instant and easy access to social networking applications directly from the phone's home screen, as you can see here. The shortcuts are laid out along the bottom row of the home screen, and you can select one to access that site or app. The INQ1 mobile comes with Facebook, Skype, Windows Messenger, and Google and Yahoo apps built-in, but you can add more if you want.

Facebook integration

One of the key selling points of the INQ Mobile system is the close integration of social networking apps into your address book. As you can see here, the online presence of all your contacts are displayed right there in the contacts list. You can see if your friends are on Facebook, or on Skype, and you can instantly send messages to them from the address book screen.
