PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Microsoft has killed the Kin after only six weeks on the market. The first Windows Phone 7-ish phone apparently didn't sell, likely thanks to its too-high-for-the-demographic $30 data fee from Verizon.

The problem with the kin is it is a feature phone, with smart phone parts (expensive processor, expensive touch screen etc.), which means that it is can't be much cheaper than an Android phone or iPhone.

And there is the problem. If I can can an Android Phone or iPhone for just a little bit more and install whatever social networking software I want on it, why should I get a Kin?
