Microsoft Kin One and Kin Two are here – Project Pink is now official

April 12, 2010, By Thomas Antony

Microsoft Pink, after being tossed around by the rumor mill for so many months, has finally been unveiled, as a pair of handsets manufactured by Sharp. They are named the Kin One and Kin Two. Both phones, while marketed as Windows phones, will feature an experience totally different from the underlying Windows Phone 7. The Kin comes with a custom UI with a heavy social media slant, a custom browser which is supposedly based on the Zune browser, and surprisingly, zero support for third party apps. Both phones come with capacitive touchscreens with multitouch support there is no in-browser support for Flash or Silverlight.

The Kin One was formerly known as the “Turtle” is a curved square slider, with a slideout keyboard, 4Gb of storage, a mono speaker and a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash.  Kin Two , earlier known as “Pure” has a wider HVGA screen, 8GB of storage, 8 megapixel cam and a traditional landscape mode QWERTY keyboard. Other than that, both the phones have mostly the same features such as WiFi, Bluetoooth, 3.5 mm headphone jack and an FM radio.

Kin One and Kin Tow are expected to arrive on Verizon in May 2010 and a Vodafone Europe launch is expected in Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK this fall. No word on pricing has been revealed as of now.
