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 vendor lock is awful. For example, if I wanted to get iPhone 4 - I can't, because I don't live in US. But apart from that Kin thing, let me ask : "likely thanks to its too-high-for-the-demographic $30 data fee from Verizon" - is that too much for current US market ? and what exactly data fee means ?


I listened to TWIT or some other shoddy podcast - they talked about the problem with that $30 plan. This was intended for "generation upload" which means young kids. If you have 2 kids, that's $60/month extra stress on your wallet.
