3 Mobiles has unveiled the first "Facebook phone," though in all fairness, it is more of a "Facebook, Windows Live Messenger, Last.fm, Skype Phone." The phone comes from a new manufacturer called INQ, and is made exclusivley for the UK-based provider3 Mobiles.

The phone called simply the INQ¹, is being touted as the world’s most advanced social networking phone. It provides one-click access to Facebook features and integrates the other aforementioned services into the heart of the phone.

It offers:

- integrated RSS Feeds
– free Skype-to-Skype calling
– Unlimited Free instant messenger capabilities
– the ability to directly upload pics to Facebook via the phone’s 3.2 megapixel camera 

"We are really happy to be working with INQ to bring its customers a deeply-integrated Facebook experience on the new INQ¹ handsets," said Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook: "More than 15 million Facebook users currently access the site through their mobile devices. This number has doubled over the past six months, and we expect it to continue to grow as people become even more familiar with handsets like the INQ¹."

I suspect that we will start seeing a great many more social network-enabled phones as time goes on. It only makes sense as the next logical step in the industry. For more details about the INQ¹, read this.

    Gadgets are all the rage lately but has anyone actually found this type of device useful? I find there are just too many ways to deplete the bank account in favour of the large vendors to get excited about just another gadget.

    Fantastic article web pro news, this is the first i have heard about the new facebook mobile.  I am sure this is just the start of things to come as the world and the young drive technology and communication to another level.  I guess a lot of emphasis that has in the past been put on search engine optimisation, I think a lot of companies will be joining Facebook for a company presence.  – Susan, Freelance Google Consultant
