Microsoft has finally unvailed its two new cell phones which are the answer to the andriod and iPhone market. If you are looking forward to getting updates on Facebook, Orkut, etc. Then keep you can keep your self up-to-date through Microsoft’s latest release.

Termed as Kin, Microsoft is trying to provide an undue matching advatntage to the youth by  enabling services that provide social networking. The two versions of the phone: Kin 1 and Kin2 will be sold by the US company Verizon Wireless. Though the phones have been designed by Sharp Corporation, Microsoft has provided the software or the “brains” to the run this ingenuious phone, based on Microsoft applications.

The phone launch that happened on Monday 12 April, will be followed by a complete market release in May. Once these two models are sold  in May, they shall also be available in European market by the end of the month and hopefully in the rest of the world.

Its seems that Microsoft has finally reponded to the technology crunch that it has been having in the android and the smartphone market. Apart from the fact that there are android applications exploding in the market, based on Google and Apple applications, Microsoft has begun to feel the pinch increasingly in order to take a step in the mobile phone market direction.

Some of the features of the Kin 1 and the Kin 2 include:

  • Touch scrren interface
  • QWERTY keypads-Kin One QWERTY keyboard slides out and Kin Two QWERTY keyboard slides in.
  • Wirless access
  • Kin One has a biult-in 5-megapixel camera whereas, the Kin Two has a biult-in 8-megapixel camera with HD resolution.
  • The mobile phones will be supported by Microsoft’s application e.g. Microsoft’s Zune software for playing music.

The launch of these phones in the market in the month of May will certainly be a much anticipated wait, especially if you are already a Google or Apple fan, atleast expect a new twist in the smartphone market through the Kin One and Kin Two release.
