Microsoft is made up of a number of different divisions, those in charge of the new Xbox 360 S — as many people are calling it — are very proud of what they believe is a winning product. However, on the other side is the team who was in charge of its social media cell phone — Kin One and Two.
These are two opposites of Microsoft, which is a sort of Yin and Yang. The two — well three — devices could not be any different. The team behind the Xbox 360 knew that gamers wanted a newer sleeker looking model, and for the most part they have delivered.
We do not know the understanding behind both Kin handsets; Microsoft has been struggling in the mobile OS market and has been working hard on Windows Phone 7 — so why did they feel the need to also work on their own handsets as well?
The software giant should have realized that they needed to put all their effort in the mobile OS to try and take on iPhone OS — now iOS 4 — and also the behemoth that is Google Android. We just hope that Windows Phone 7 does not fail like those two handsets.
Do you think both Kin handsets were destined to fail?
