Verizon has slashed the prices of Microsoft's ill-conceived and ill-received not-so-smartphones with the Dr. Seussian names of Kin One and Kin Two. Just six weeks after release, the biscuit-shaped Kin One now costs a mere $29.99 with a two-year plan and a side-sliding Kin Two, $49.99. At those prices, may we suggest that it …
So, I guess it could serve to suggest that Microsoft doesn't have the same followship as Apple. Go figure!
Stupid MS 'kin phones
What the 'kin 'ell were they thinking?
...but they're 'kin shite!
I don't get it
Weren't these supposed to replace Sidekick phones? Then how did they manage to fudge the pricing so badly?!
Kin = Early version of Windows Phone 7
Microsoft has promoted Kin as being a prelude to Windows Phone 7, which much commonality.
Now that Kin is dead in the market, I can assume that Microsoft will try to distance it as far as possible from Windows Phone 7, and try to brush Kin under the carpet as if it never happened.
I wonder if the Kin line is a product of the Danger division. The upload portion for everything sure seems to make it look that way.
With a name like Danger, it is just not a name, but a warning.
$0.01 at Amazon
Old news, been 1cent at Amazon for a while now.
I took a look at Amazon, checked the single "Customer Review" which gave it a big thumbs up and lo and behold the one and only reviewer resides in . . . . . Seattle, Washington.
Nice try Amazon. Nice try Microsoft.
Not only that...
... but they also went and bought the other Kin phone too... All smells a bit fishy to me.
It's about time
They reduced the 'Kin price.
i am going to wait for...
the Kin hell :p
iPhone 4 sells 1.7 million on its first weekend, M$ will be luck to sell 1.7 :D
I feel a powerful urge.
I don't know why, but this makes me want to wear a black turtleneck and laugh maniacally.
Verizon needs to slash the MS Kin.
