Microsoft KIN ONE & TWO models
Looking very similar to other social networking focussed handsets, like the Motorola DEXT or a Vodafone 360 handset (to name just two out of a considerable number), the KIN handsets have a front-end that is very similar in look to Motorola’s MOTOBLUR system that brings a range of social content together.
A new interface does away with traditional menus and icons, and each model uses a touchscreen with a traditional QWERTY keyboard to aid text input.
The KIN ONE comes with a 5-megapixel camera, while the KIN TWO has an 8-megapixel camera (each with a bright LED flash). Both models will also include the Zune experience, including music, video, FM radio and podcast playback. Subscribers who have a Zune Pass will be able to listen to millions of songs from Zune Marketplace on the go, or load on a personal collection via a PC.
The phones also include a web browser, and innovative ways to share content with Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. Favourite people can be set to prioritise their updates.
KIN Spot is a new way to share content. Simply drag videos, photos, text messages, web pages, locations and status updates into a single place and then choose how to share them.
The handsets will be available in the UK in the Autumn, exclusively on Vodafone.
