Microsoft has at last launched the long awaited products of its ‘Pink’ project. The smart phones that have made their way into the Verizon network are Kin One and Kin Two. Packed with advanced communication and social networking features, the Kin phones have several unique features that you have not seen elsewhere.
Features of Microsoft Kin phones
Loop User Interface
Microsoft has created the Loop user interface for the two Kin phones. If you are one of those millions of people obsessed with social networking, you will find Loop an efficient user-friendly app that will automatically collect information from all your favorite social networking sites, and bring them together on the home screen, keeping you updated of every move of your friends.
On the home screen of the Kin phone handsets, you will find an area marked ‘Spot’. This space on the home screen has been created for sharing pictures, videos and texts and for updating your status. To accomplish your data-sharing task, simply drag and drop the content you wish to share to the ‘Spot’.
To ensure the safety of your documents and files stored in the Kin phones, all your data including your call history could be saved automatically in the Studio. From the customized digital journal, you can retrieve any data whenever you want.
Integrated Zune music player
When you have a Microsoft smartphone, you can expect to find Zune integrated in the handset.
