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

Palm's CEO has been talking about selling the business due to bad profits, they must be doing REALLY good. And Blackberry is still small in the smartphone market.
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.

AnDo, 23 Apr 2010n900 wanabeewhat N900, n900 is cheaper than iphone 3g 8gb which was released 2 years ago, and cheaper than htc hero which was released 20 months ago. n900 is a flop so why kin one and kin 2 wanna compete with a flop.
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.
Boooooooooooo ...this is not expected from Microsoft...to compete with Apple they some solid phones.....
haha ppl are flaming kin one but i think its a good phone for whats targeted. Prolly you folks daughter will ask for one so be ready :)
its a phone designed for young ppl and imo will sell like water.
Finally I found a phone more ugly than my NOKIA E90...And this is not good for Microsoft;
