    Default Microsoft Pink is Microsoft Kin

    MS has unveiled as a pair of handsets sourced from Sharp for "Kin" (What kind of a name is it?) Trust MS to think of such names!

    First MS has to employ someone (I am free these days) to give good names to their product. They are sometimes very short - KIN and sometimes very long do you remember - Microsoft Indic Language Input Tool (uff!!).

    Second, I saw the video and I don't find it much impressing, where's the GAME, its not a MS kind of phone.

    I just got my hands on Palm Pre and I am loving it.

    agreed.... KIN is specially dedicated for kids... lack of smartphone functionality.

    and yeah.. its having the ZUNE player instead of Windows media player..... thats cool

    “Windows Phone 7 is designed to simplify your life; KIN is designed to amplify it.”
    MS mentioned somewhere...

    I doesn't digg into mobile phones than PCs, but this time... its attracting me... and I'll definitely explore them...
    I got One straight line yet... Windows Phone 7 is software (operating system) and KIN is hardware (handset)...
