Microsoft officially relaunches the Kin One and Kin Two

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on November 18th, 2010

After being called one of Microsoft’s greatest failures and having been pulled from sale after only six weeks during its original run, the Kin One and Kin Two are now back on sale with Verizon. This re-release gives them a name change to the Kin ONEm and Kin TWOm. Originally Microsoft only sold 8,810 units, but they hope to turn those sales numbers around with better pricing plans.

One of the reasons cited for the poor sales was that the phones lacked full smartphone functionality, but at the same time were forced to use smartphone plans of at least $70 per month. It just couldn’t compete with more fully featured phones.

If you are waiting for the new Kin phones, this latest leak will be welcome news. According to an internal Verizon email, both devices will be available for pre-order on May 6th, and will be launched on all channels on May 13th.

Obviously there’s no official confirmation, but with May 6th almost upon us already, we’ll know if it’s true soon enough.

Remember Microsoft Pink? It’s just been unveiled as a pair of handsets from Sharp called the Kin One and Kin Two. The devices are mostly based on Windows Phone 7, but they offer a totally different experience.

The entire user interface is custom to Kin and has a heavier social media slant, a custom browser and what’s this?, no support for third-party apps. The displays support multitouch with no support for in-browser Flash or Silverlight.
