adeelarshad82 writes “Microsoft has recently launched two new phones known as the Kin One and Kin Two, previously codenamed ‘Pink.’ The phones are designed to appeal to social-networking-focused teens, which is probably why the marketing team has tried to spice up the packaging of the phones. According to a Microsoft official the phones are named Kin because they ‘knit together … kindred spirits.’ The phones have a keyboard. The Kin One has a 5-megapixel camera, while the Kin Two’s 8-megapixel camera can shoot 720p HD video. Both cameras include an LED flash. The One has a mono speaker, the Two’s is stereo. One includes 4GB of on-board memory and the Two has 8GB. Both Kin phones have touch screens. According to the hands-on, the Kin phones are based on the same Windows CE core as Windows Phone 7, and they have an IE-based browser. These phones have no downloadable apps, no games, not even a calendar. They’re not meant to be expandable smart phones; instead, very good messaging phones.”
