Though the pretty lengthy heading above explains it all yet we will have to get down to some details to understand what exactly has happened over here. With the end of upcoming month of January the end of KIN will become a reality. This will affect all (the two to four out there) the KIN customers who will lose the ability to do anything over-the-air.
We have seen many different phones out there on the market from all sorts of manufactures. Some of them were amazing while others were just mediocre. Speaking of mediocre phones, you might remember Microsoft Kin that was released several months ago. According to the latest news, Microsoft is planning to kill the Microsoft Kin phone and we’re here to find out why.
Microsoft had proudly designed two smartphones (Kin One & Kin Two) targeting the younger lot especially when they are looking for smartphones that aren’t costly. Well, the cost of their smartphones-for-teens did turn out to be cheap but the monthly plans can actually spray water on all their marketing efforts. Verizon is planning to charge $30 per month to its customers who carry Microsoft’s Kin One or Kin Two. Henceforth, teenagers will end up carrying smartphones with basic functions but with monthly cost somewhere equal to Blackberrys.
