Verizon to shutter The KIN Studio next month, offers users a free 3G phone
Perhaps reading a list of which features will still be supported would be easier. Based on the letters sent out by the carrier (see below), on January 31st, your KIN will allow you to make voice calls, sent text, picture and video messages, browse the web, use your Zune pass on Wi-Fi only, use your camera and Alarm Clock and keep your contacts. You will be able to load any pictures, videos and contacts to your home computer by heading over to either www.VerizonWireless.com/KINOneSupport or www.VerizonWireless.com.KINTwoSupport depending on which model you own, of course.
Finally, Verizon must feel a bit guilty about all of this so until March 31st, the carrier will allow KIN owners to pick a 3G phone for free.
