CONNECT WITH HBB ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Microsoft launched a series of Kin phones on Monday April 12 and they also announced that they have teamed with Verizon. It was actually designed to attract people who use social networks actively. Kin was also known as Project Pink.

Verizon Wireless (CDMA service provider) will launch the phone in the US in May. Vodafone (GSM service provider) will do the same in the Europe in late 2010.

We have two models here, Microsoft Kin One and Microsoft Kin Two. Kin One and Kin Two were known as Turtle and Pure earlier.

This phone has access to the Zune music cloud service and the user can stream music via Zune. They also have a green spot on the screen where users can drag photos, links and social network messages and then share with friends.

Below I mentioned the features and specifications of the two models.

Microsoft Kin One, when compared with Microsoft Kin Two, has quite few features and I also guess Kin Two will be costlier than Kin One. Let’s wait and see!

So when is this model releasing?

Microsoft Kin Phone Release Date is expected to be around May 2010 and it may vary according to countries.

What’s the price of Microsoft Kin One and Kin Two?

It is still under the wrap. Will ping you guys when they announce it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Confusing Act! Microsoft’s Official Kin Website is using Adobe Flash instead of Microsoft Silverlight. I think the phone uses silverlight as a platform. Am just wondering.. ๐Ÿ˜€

      If I’m not mistaken, Project Pink was actually started by the Danger company, the guys who made the T-Mobile Sidekick

      this is a seriously good looking phone, the open out and slide in of the keyboard looks good too. the second one looks more like a phone as you rightly mentioned, but the kin1 is very different and i had to take out some time to appreciate the creativity of the design. Hope the prices are good ๐Ÿ™‚

    • GDI Blog

      Nice designs, looks great ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Genite

      Both are good for me but i link Microsoft Kin Two because it has 8MP camera. wow…

    • Kamal Hasa

      This is the ultimate Social networking phone that it is expected to be.

      Hope that it will be a huge hit ๐Ÿ˜‰

      More than a phone, Kin one looks like a social networking device. The design looks like a rock, it won’t be a comfortable phone to talk

      This post confused me a lot ๐Ÿ˜› Not your fault though… I was thinking that there will be a transparent version of the turtle (KIN 1), according to some rumors.. Doesn’t seem like that… And using Adobe Flash ?? Silverlight is way better.. Why would they possibly want flash to be the default … I think they might be playing tricks in black now ๐Ÿ˜›
