Features And Specs Of Microsoft Kin One And Two

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.

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! 😉

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.. 😀
