The Cloud phones are expected to hit stores in the second quarter of this year. Pricing details are not known.

Company’s co-founder Ken Johnstone said both INQ’s new models have Facebook in their DNA.

Johnstone said, "We didn’t put a Facebook button on because our users don’t think ‘I’m going to look at Facebook’. It was important that it’s an authentic, comprehensive Facebook experience".
