Microsoft Kin One and Two specs updated, 600 MHz CPU inside - read the full textMicrosoft purposefully left us in the dark with some of the specs of the Kin One and Kin Two, but some details remained unclear until now. Thanks to the social marketing director John Starkweather, we're finally able to put all the bits and pieces together. We gotta admit - the German Microsoft...

If you ask me then Microsoft should have called this phone Kin L instead of Kin 1.

If Nokia would just add cut and paste, new playlist creation, multitasking, they're phones would be better! Oh wait, they already did that. iPhone OS is a joke, not even a smartphone. Android is good, although I don't care for it.

Kin one, looks like an effort produced by Alcatel, hope it's a bargain price. Still, these phones may be good in reality, design looks a little suspect. But the X-box is not exactly stylish in most Europeans minds, more popular to the US aesthetics perhaps?

Apple is near San Francisco, California. Some rain, no snow, mostly warm or hot, lots of sun. Cultural diversity and lots of it.

I think Apple employees are just happier over all.

kin one and kin 2 are there to take over the market share from Android, they dont care about nokia cuz nokia is loosing out.
