Released in mid-April 2010, the Kin series is the successor or Danger's Sidekick, purchased by Microsoft a year earlier. The Kin are, like its predecessor, targeted at the young mobile users and offer nothing spectacular except for a seamless integration with services like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Windows Live.
On 1 July 2010, Microsoft suspended the KIN project just 2 months after their US launch. The two social networking phones are going to be reworked and probably re-released for Europe running Windows Phone 7, not the KIN OS they were running until now.
Kin One and Kin Two are both QWERTY sliders based on Windows Phone 7, heavily customized, even featuring a custom MS browser based on Zune. The Kin One has a QVGA (240x400) display, and the Kin Two - an HVGA (480x320). The Kins come with 4GB, respectively 8GB internal storage (* Windows Phone 7 has no support for external memory), 5 MP and 8 MP LED flash camera, capacitive multi-touch screens. Both have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
