Microsoft “Kin”

The project known as “Kin” is now being killed inside microsoft. Engadget is running a post that explains what they believe is going on.

The concept behind the Kin was to create a low price device that would allow people to stay connected to social media / cloud information. Essentially a blackberry to those not needing a blackberry. What I found interesting during the discussions of the “kin” project was how this all fit together with the upcoming windows 7 phone OS.

From the article it is unclear what Microsoft’s direction is. What I did take away was that a device that many people did not think would succeed is no longer being offered.

What are your thoughts on the KIN?
