Microsoft's Kin to take on iPhone, Blackberry

                 Microsoft announced the results of project that kept buzzing entire twitterverse and blogosphere called  "Project Pink" along with companies Verizon, Vodafone and Sharp. Microsoft have made entry to special social-media enabled feature phones which are KIN phones targeted at the 15-30 year age range. Whats more cool is that they have even made Zune integration . There are two KINs for this Microsoft KIN project the Kin ONE and Kin TWO and these were known as Turtle and Pure earlier.  Both of em have slideout keyboards, with the ONE being vertical and the TWO being horizontal.
           The Microsoft Kin ONE is the lower-end device, with a 5 megapixel camera on it, while the Kin TWO has an 8 megapixel camera and the ability to record 720p video.The home screen of the phone is called the Kin Loop, which is always up to date and always on, showing all the things happening in someone’s social world. Kin automatically brings together feeds from leading Microsoft and third-party services such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter all in one place, making it easier to stay connected. Customers can also select their favorite people, and Kin will automatically prioritize their status updates, messages, feeds and photos.
             Another unique feature, the Kin Spot is a new way for people to share what’s going on in their world. It lets them focus first on the people and stuff they want to share rather than the specific application they want to use. Videos, photos, text messages, Web pages, location and status updates are shared by simply dragging them to a single place on the phone called the Spot. Once all the people and content are in the Spot to share, the consumer can choose how to share, and start broadcasting.
            Kin Studio is your phone online. Almost everything created on the phone is available in the cloud from any Web browser. Photos and videos are freed from the confines of the phone and presented in an online visual timeline so they are easy to view and share. The Kin Studio automatically backs up texts, call history, photos, videos and contacts, and populates a personalized digital journal so it’s easy to go back in time to relive a crazy weekend or recent birthday. And the Kin Studio gives customers tons of storage to keep all those photos, videos, contacts and texts so they will never run out of space on their phone and lose memory.
           These social-media enabled feature phones are focused narrowly and this series is designed to enable access to social networking for young adults and teens and according to sources this Microsoft KIN will debut on Verizon's network in May, and on Vodafone in the fall (in Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom).
However the Pricing wasn't announced but it will be as costly as android and iphone
