Microsoft Kin One and Two: New Verizon Release Date

By Alan Ng - May 6, 2010

Yesterday, we informed you that the Microsoft Kin One and Kin Two handsets would be launching on Verizon today. Well, that information was incorrect as we can confirm via Microsoft’s PR that the phones will actually be available on Friday, the 7th.

As reported from BGR, Microsoft has just made both phones official in their press release, confirming prices and data plans on Verizon.

You’ll be able to pick up the Kin One for $49.99 after a $100 mail in rebate and 2-year contract, while the Kin Two will be available for $99.99 price tag after a $100 mail in rebate and a 2-year deal.

As we mentioned yesterday, the downside of picking up these phones, is that you’ll still be required to pay at least $29.99 per month for data plans.

Are you waiting to pick up either phone from Verizon? Friday is now the day to remember. Full press release through the link.

    Kin is not a good phone. It is not very functional.

    In fact, because it has no applications it is worst than most of the cheapest candy-bar phones. Microsoft will give you no choice about what applications you can have. It won't let you upload photos to Twitter. There are 15 minute delays on receiving Kin's social messages (to me that makes it unusable). The handset is unable to Instant Message.

    I want apps! Most of the cheapest phones can run Java ME apps. It is unbelievable that Kin just has no apps at all. To rub salt into the wound, Kin users must by a voice plan as well as an expensive monthly data plan, which causes the costs to skyrocket over a 2 year contract period.

    No, the Kin is just a lot of pain.
