Microsoft pulls plug on phones; no more next of KIN

Microsoft pulls plug on phones; no more next of KIN
As we reported recently, the pair of KIN phones offered through Verizon have not exactly been setting sales records. At least, not the positive ones. A few weeks ago, reports were circulating that Big Red had sold a whopping 500 units and while that has not been confirmed by Verizon or Microsoft (if you were either firm, would you confirm it?) the phones have certainly been a disappointment to both. Microsoft has decided to cancel a fall European launch for the KIN and is folding what is left of the KIN team with the Windows Phone 7 crew, hoping that the latter gets some ideas and technologies from the former that can be included in future Windows Phone releases. In a statement, the Redmond based company said that they have decided to focus exclusively on Windows Phone 7, but will continue to work with Verizon in the U.S. to sell the current KIN models.
