Microsoft outs Kin phones

Written by Fudzilla staff

Like Zune, but much uglier

Microsoft
has officially introduced the Kin One and Kin Two, the first handsets in the history of the company.

Both phones feature a qwerty keyboard for easy text input, but they also feature low res QVGA screens that don't sound too impressive, especially if you consider that the phones are based on Nvidia's Tegra SoC. The Kin One packs 4GB of storage and a 5MP camera, while its big brother has an 8MP camera and 8GB of storage.

The UI on both phones is based on the Zune HD, which means that it should be quite good. Microsoft focused on social networking and content sharing, so teens and the unemployed should love it, provided the price is right. Mind you, although Microsoft did not comment on the price, it's quite clear that the phones won't end up too expensive. They have less memory and more plastic than competing models from Nokia, Apple, Samsung and HTC, hence they could end up on the affordable side.

The phones are expected to ship in May, both in the US and Europe.
