Sydney's Microsoft KIN Two review

2 September 2010
  • Summary: The KIN Two has almost too many features to discuss - a terrific email client, a great camera that captures HD video, a new way to connect with the KIN Spot, Loop, and Studio (though I don’t think you’ll use the KIN Studio as much as they say you will), and an awesome music player with a built-in Zune. The only problem is that the phone is supposed to be the answer to everyone’s social-networking prayers and it’s not. It falls short in that category.

Noah's Kin Two review

2 September 2010
  • Summary: Microsoft and Verizon are taking something of a chance with their new Kin duo of phones, what with their arrestingly different user interfaces, curious omission of features like calendars and IM clients, and smartphone-level monthly data pricing. Me? If I had to choose one Kin or the other I'd take Kin Two - I prefer its horizontal slider layout and two-thumb friendly keyboard, not to mention the extra memory and HD video capture not found on its little sister, Kin One.

Microsoft Kin Two Review

10 May 2010
  • Excerpt: As we all know, “different” does not necessarily equal “better.” Yes, the operating system Microsoft has concocted for its ballyhooed Kin One ($49.99 with rebate and two-year contract) and Kin Two ($99.99 with rebate and two-year contract) phones, made by Sharp for Verizon, is way beyond different.
  • Pros: Clever social-network-centric OS, Mirrors all activities and auto uploads photos to Kin Studio Web site, High-quality 5 MP (Kin One) and 8 MP (Kin Two) camera with flash, 4GB (Kin One) 8GB (Kin Two) built-in memory, Light, sleek, stylish uncluttered exterior
  • Cons: Cluttered, claustrophobic OS, No third-party apps, Slippery exterior, Unintuitive music player, Hard to get high-quality video off phone, No external memory card slot

Microsoft Kin Two (Verizon Wireless) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
10 May 2010
  • Summary: Perhaps it's telling that Verizon Wireless dropped $50 off the price of the Kin Two to $99 the day before it was announced; regardless, consumers will still have to cough up $30 a month for a data plan on a device that does much less than a more versatile smart phone. And if you want a Zune Pass, that's another $15 per month.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Innovative Studio web interface, Zune built in
  • Cons: Poor integration with social networking apps, No instant messaging, Clumsy interface, No third-party apps or games, Mediocre call quality
