We have spoken about the Microsoft Pink for some time now, and now the project has finally been unveiled at the Microsoft’s ‘It’s Time To Share’ event! We can now tell you that a pair of handsets called the Kin One and Kin Two are to be manufactured by Sharp.
These new handsets will have many of the same features as Windows Phone 7, but with a few changes. The user interface is totally different though; this is because the Kin One and Two have a custom interface, browser — based on Zune.
Engadget reports that these new Pink handsets will have no third-party app support. However they will come with multitouch and capacitive support. The Kin One is the handset that we all assumed was the Turtle and comes with a 5-megapixel camera, QWERTY keyboard, and 4GB of internal storage.
The Kin Two is only different in the way of double the storage. Verizon is the carrier who will be offering the Kin One and Kin Two, and will be available from pay.
