Mobile service provider 3 Network has recently launched INQ1, a mobile device that fully integrated social features such as Facebook, Skype, and IM as part of its operating system.
Some of the more interesting features include facebook status updates from your friends that are integrated into your contact list, including eBay and custom widget funtionality. The best part? The phone's ability to act as a plug and play 3G modem. The only feature that wasn't highlighted is whether or not the phone has GPS capabilities.
The emergence of a mobile device catering to the social crowd beyond text messaging allows for social networking portability that will become part of the future of social media.
