Microsoft Kin

Microsoft’s phone for the teens will be discontinued soon without seeing the light of day in Europe (after a mere 48 days on the market).

Microsoft has announced that it is planning to merge the KIN team into the Windows Phone 7 group.

As of now Verizon and Microsoft will sell off the KINs that are presently in the wild, though I see no reason why one would buy it now. Europe will not see any KINs officially.

Microsoft had the following to say on the issue:

“We have made the decision to focus exclusively on Windows Phone 7 and we will not ship KIN in Europe this fall as planned. Additionally, we are integrating our KIN team with the Windows Phone 7 team, incorporating valuable ideas and technologies from KIN into future Windows Phone releases. We will continue to work with Verizon in the U.S. to sell current KIN phones.”
