inq mobileINQ’s Facebook-oriented and web-centric budget phone that I love so much, INQ Social Mobile, has won some major kudos at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. It was voted best mobile phone/device, beating out its much bigger and more established competitors such as Nokia and Samsung. INQ’s win is proof that any upstart that dares to be different can carve out a niche in the billion-phones-a-year business.

  3. INQ was the most prepared company for Mobile World Congress. Looks like a great product – I sure want one – and an very strong on-site marketing effort at the show. They knew what they were doing; most young firms don’t.

  6. Seems like Qualcomm is the big winner if this phone demonstrates that BrewOS can hold it’s own against Symbian and Windows Mobile for powering feature phones.

  8. Hi Om,

    Just curious. Do you actually have and use all these phones? ;) You write a lot about so many devices, phones, etc. Do you really use them or just try them out and write about them?

    Amen to that. I like what Qualcomm has been doing to position itself well in a much changing world.

    @Parveen,

    I typically use these devices on-and-off, though most of the time I have a dedicated device for basic tasks such as email, IM and phone. I am currently using T-Mobile Curve 8900 and a standard Samsung flip phone from Verizon.
