If you were disappointed when Facebook shot down rumors that it was working on an official Facebook phone, you may be in luck, thanks to manufacturer INQ Mobile. According to Bluetooth SIG, the INQ Cloud Touch could be exactly what Facebook was rumored to be developing:

INQ Cloud Touch is an Android smartphone built to make messaging faster and smarter. It’s designed around the way people naturally communicate and has Facebook built into its core. The homescreen features multiple entry points to different Facebook functions, while a dynamic widget displays a feed of status updates, albums, videos and photos.

This isn't really surprising, as a quick look at INQ's site reveals their history of making "social" phones. As stated, Facebook doesn't appear to be planning to launch its own Android phone, so the Cloud Touch will likely not receive any official support from Facebook. Still, it will be interesting to see what functionality the Cloud Touch will feature that Facebook's current Android app is not capable of.
