Manufacturers in the technological sphere have been on a prowl to engineer handsets with popular themes. As social networking sites like Facebook stretch out to influence the mood in the domain, INQ has supposedly developed products for delivering better connectivity through such mediums. According to a post on Engadget, the company has unveiled two models namely the Cloud Touch and the Cloud Q.

Reportedly, these new handsets are powered by Android 2.2 and come equipped with similar features. The difference between the Cloud Touch and the Cloud Q lies in the fact that the former sports a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display while the latter is outfitted with a QWERTY keypad. These handsets will apparently pave their way with 5MP autofocus cameras and triband HSPA support along with Spotify for a musical experience.

It has been stated that the Touch and the Q will allegedly be the first handsets to flaunt the Facebook Social Graph API. This option is said to flash important Facebook content on the device’s homescreen. Additionally, these models have been implanted with SwiftKey-based keyboard technology which predicts the word that is being inserted. The report states that it foresees words by taking AI wizardry, science and users’ writing tendencies into consideration.

Rumors indicate that the Cloud Touch could come ashore this April on at Carphone Warehouse and BestBuy in the UK. Further, the Cloud Q is expected to arrive in the third quarter of this year.
