Following the recent preview of INQ’s Cloud Touch phone, more commonly known as the Facebook Phone, the company has officially confirmed the device. Of course, the device is really an Android-powered device with some Facebook-oriented widgets and shortcuts that make accessing the social network’s chat, contacts, events, notices, news feeds and more much easier. The phone is powered by a 600MHz Qualcomm chip and INQ is planning to get Android 2.3 on the device further down the road. An interesting feature of this phone will be the use of Spotify in place of the stock Android media player, offering users unlimited music, though it will require a subscription that will likely be bundled as part of the package.
A variant of the phone, dubbed the Cloud Q, will offer a QWERTY keyboard, which should appease the text-hungry users out there. The Cloud Touch will ship to Europe first and will launch in the UK in April, with other countries getting the device later.
