Microsoft has announced the long awaited results of the “Project Pink” efforts to revamp their position in the mobile market and the first Windows phones to be released are targeted at tweens and teens who are avid users of social media. Kin Phones, which can be seen in detail at Kin.com, come in two models the Kin One and of course Kin Two and these are not Thing One and Thing Two. These are good looking phones and they seem to be the perfect phone for teenage children who use popular social networks such as MySpace, Twitter and Facebook.
The KIN phones feature easy to use high res cameras for capturing HD photos and videos and posting them to your social network with a few flicks of the finger on the multitasking touch screen devices. The new Windows Phones run a custom GUI which integrates Zune media player and according to the Zune Facebook page we will be able to stream Zune Pass music to our phones from anywhere as long as you have minutes on your plan I suppose.
What data plans and cost the new Kin phones have are still to be announced but if they want to compete Microsoft will have to come in cheap if they want the new Zune enabled phones to be a hit with the kids when you consider it is most likely their parents who will be making the contract commitments and monthly bill payments.
