An announcement has recently be made that the new iteration of the INQ1 mobile phone will also include the Twitter utility.
Twitter is a micro blogging and social networking service for mobile platforms. The idea is that the service allows you to send and read other user's updates.
The latter, known as ‘tweets' are text based and span up to 140 characters.
Recent figures suggested that 5 million people were using the service.
According to the company's CEO, Frank Meehan, who talked to the Electric Pig website, when asked if Twitter would be featured on the new INQ2, he said that, "I think we'd be stupid if we didn't but we haven't confirmed it yet - you want to do it properly."
3 currently positions the INQ1 as a ‘social' mobile phone. The next release in the series, cunningly labelled the INQ2, is due for release soon - more price and distribution details will follow.
