Talkmobile launches IMO Q ‘Pocket Money’ Smartphone from £7 per month

IMO (In My Opinion), an exciting new mobile brand selling handsets defined for the UK market, has today launched IMO Q, an Android smartphone, with Talkmobile from just £7* per month. The handset brings smartphone technology to users with pocket money budgets.

With a 4” screen, running Android 5.1 Lollipop, 3G data, and a 1.2 GHZ quad core processor plus a 5MP rear and 2MP front camera, the IMO Q primarily targets the youth and family market. The device is perfect for gamers, Snapchatters and Facebookers. It also makes Android phones an affordable option for first time smartphone owners and consumers still using feature phones, enabling families to keep in touch using the device for sharing pictures on social media, navigation, and as a lifeline in case of emergency.

“The IMO Q offers the best value smartphone experience without sacrificing quality or functionality,” said Nigel Whitehead, IMO’s Head of Sales and Propositions. “The IMO team is primarily based in the UK, and has carefully specified the features of the phone to appeal to the UK audience. We understand that parents are often reluctant to entrust youngsters with phones costing hundreds of pounds. The IMO Q gives them access to great smartphone experiences, without the worry associated with more expensive phones.”

Phil Roberson, Managing Director of Talkmobile, thinks the new challenger brands offer more choice to people who want to own a smartphone without breaking the bank.

“We don’t think owning a smartphone should be expensive so we are always looking for well spec’d phones that offer great value. The launch of the IMO Q gives our customers even more choice because it combines the popular Android operating system with good design at an attractive price.”
