I hope you still remember previous theories on Facebook Phone. If you want to refresh, read out a month old revelation on how closely INQ is working with Facebook to launch first ever dedicated Facebook phone. Progressing on the same path-way, today INQ Mobile, a British startup owned by Hutchison Whampoa, has showcased “almost fully functional” pre-production version of first Facebook phone which will be known as Clod Touch.

TechCrunch has released the video in which INQ channel manager Andrew Bannet is showing the detail functionality of Cloud Touch. The phone is built on top of Android with a Facebook wrapper, with features pulled up and enhanced from the Facebook app itself. It looks a bit like a white iPhone, except front and center is a visual feed from your Facebook News feed. Arrows let you flip through the latest status updates, photos, videos, and shared articles from your friends, bringing up media from the underlying links in Flipboard fashion.

The new INQ Cloud Touch also allows users to play with Facebook features like People, Events, Notifications, and Places through four separate touch buttons located at top of the screen. The People button shows you the feeds of your closest friends while the Events button pulls all your Facebook events such as birthday and Google calendar updates. Notifications keeps you up to speed on your latest Facebook friend requests and messages, while the Places lets you check into restaurants, bars, and shops.

Besides these, there is an additional button to pull up Facebook chat and the familiar mobile grid icon that pulls up all the main menu page of the underlying Facebook app.

However, INQ has decided to replace the traditional Android music player with Spotify for INQ Cloud Touch. INQ is targeting May launch for Cloud Touch in Europe followed by U.S. currently.

Certainly, its just a decent Android Phone for addictive social media fans. At this point of time we can only guess that phone is going to be very cost effective as majority of Facebook Fans who would prefer to opt this device are teenagers. We are expecting that after subsidizing the phone with contract, it should be available at $50 and unlocked version for about $250 – $300 range.

Have a look on the video below which provides comprehensive view of first Facebook phone or better known as INQ Cloud Touch.
