Microsoft Kin Two Review

Digitaltrends
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 ONE and TWO Review

Phone Arena
6 May 2010
  • Conclusion: If there is anything going for KIN, it has to be its tight integration of social networking that envelops users to take notice of its keen strengths in that department. First of all, the KIN ONE is quite a compelling piece of hardware which can be attributed to its hockey puck looks, but we feel it is more suitable for sending a plethora of messages thanks to its good QWERTY keyboard.

Microsoft Kin Two im Test: QWERTZ-Knochen für Social Networker

CNET
7 May 2010
  • Summary: Im April 2010 hat Microsoft endlich den Schleier um Project Pink gelüftet und sein Handy-Duo Kin One und Kin Two vorgestellt. Die beiden Geräte richten sich an Jugendliche, die in sozialen Netzwerken zuhause sind. Während eine vollständige Integration von Facebook, Twitter & Co. ab Werk an Bord ist, fehlt jegliche Erweiterungsmöglichkeit via Apps. Hat Microsoft eine Chance gegen die Konkurrenz?
  • Pros: einfacher Zugriff auf soziale Netzwerke, integrierter Zune-Player, unkomplizierte Backup-Möglichkeit
  • Cons: kein Instant Messenger, kein Kalender, überfrachtetes, gewöhnungsbedürftiges Interface, schlechte Kamera
