Written under: Business, Lifestyle, Technology
Microsoft’s long-awaited mobile phone, the Microsoft Kin has been unveiled. Specifically called the KIN One and the KIN Two, these so-called social phones combine the look of the Pre and Sidekick phones, with the engineering of the iPhone.
It was also announced that it will be Sharp who will be manufacturing the mobile phones and Vodaphone and Verizon will be the exclusive carriers which will ship starting May in the US.
Microsoft Kin 1 and Kin 2 will be offered at 4GB and 8GB onboard storage. It comes with a phone camera with 5 and 8 megapixels capacity respectively.
The mobile phone runs under Windows 7 with an internet browser based on the Zune and surprisingly, not Internet Explorer.
