Singapore Telecommunications (SingTel) and INQ Mobile have announced that SingTel mobile customers will soon become the first in Asia and among the first in the world to get their hands on the 3G social mobile phone, the new INQ Mini 3G.
The innovative phone is exclusive to SingTel customers in Singapore and will hit the stores on 19 September 2009. The launch of the new INQ Mini 3G follows the global success of the first INQ Mobile phone, INQ1, which was named ‘Handset of the Year’ at the 2009 Mobile World Congress.
The much-awaited INQ Mini 3G by the social networking communities around the world boasts a carousel-style menu with one click access to popular social networking applications such as Facebook and Twitter. The phone is also customised to offer SingTel users a complete social experience on the move with instant access to AMPed, SingTel’s social music service, IM on Mobile and inSing.com, SingTel’s one stop information portal.
Mr Yuen Kuan Moon, SingTel’s executive vice president of consumer, said: “SingTel is pleased to partner INQ and be the first in Asia to bring the INQ Mini 3G exclusively to our customers. The device complements our efforts to transform SingTel into an integrated multimedia solutions company, helping to strengthen our foothold in the social networking space, especially with the youths who are active users of Facebook and Twitter. We believe that INQ’s unique features provide an ideal platform for our customers to enjoy a social music experience and at the same time always stay connected to their communities.”
