Microsoft Kin One and Two

Harsh news for social addict guys: It seams that Microsoft Kin phones(One and Two) will not be shipped this fall in Europe. We don’t know yet if this means the end of Kin project, but this will be a loss almost surely for Microsoft and his customers.

We will continue to work with Verizon in the U.S. to sell current KIN phones.”
