The Kin is Dead
Microsoft announced Wednesday that it will discontinue its Kin social networking phones, only two months after they were introduced, CNET reported.
The company has called off the European release of the phones and will fold the Kin development team into its Windows Phone 7 group.
The phones, known as the Kin 1 and Kin 2, received a high-profile launch as well as a major advertising campaign. It grew out of what was known as Microsoft's "Pink" project.
