Windows 7: Microsoft Kin reviews not so keen.

07 May 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
Microsoft Kin reviews not so keen.

A few Microsoft news items from around the Web:

The early reviews of Kin (formerly known as Pink) are in. And overall, they’re not good. Most of the criticism is around price, with reviewers noting that Kins are fancy feature phones, not smartphones, but they are priced like smartphones. (There is no Kin app download capability and none coming.) Verizon is requiring a data plan that costs the same as ones for smartphones. Maybe Microsoft/Verizon are assuming some rich parents will be willing to shell out for their teens/twentysomethings to socialize?

The Wall Street Journal liked the Studio component of the new phones, but other reviewers are still scratching their heads as to why Microsoft felt a need to work with Sharp to create Windows Phones for a particular segment of the market, as opposed to pitching Windows Phone 7 devices to the “Upload Generation.”
