Even if Microsoft announced today two KIN devices only, the portrait-sliding KIN One and the landscape-sliding KIN Two, basically we will see four different KIN devices: a KIN One and KIN Two supporting Verizon Wireless' CDMA network and a KIN One and KIN Two supporting Vodafone's GSM/UMTS network. Nevertheless, all four KIN devices are new - so called - "Windows Phone" devices, designed specifically for people who are actively navigating their social lives, featuring a fun, simple interface, which is designed to help people publish the magazine of their life by making the people and stuff they love the focus rather than menus and icons.
While both KIN platforms - KIN One and KIN Two - feature a touch screen and slide-out keyboard. However, the KIN One is small and compact, making it a perfect fit for a pocket and to operate with one hand and only features a mono speaker, a 5 megapixel camera with flash and is able to record videos in SD. It comes with 4 GB of inbuilt memory. The KIN Two has a larger screen and keyboard, features stereo speakers, a 8 megapixel camera with flash and is able to record HD videos. It comes with 8 GB of inbuilt memory.
Both cameras are designed for use in low light with image stabilization and a bright LumiLED flash.
Neither Microsoft, nor Sharp, Verizon Wireless or Vodafone have given further technical information yet.
