Just a few days after drastically cutting the prices of its Kin phones, Microsoft has gone ahead and killed the whole product line altogether. The Kin phones, which were aimed at heavy users of social networks, failed to impress both reviewers and consumers.
In a statement issued this week, Microsoft confirmed that it will not make any new Kin phones: "We have made the decision to focus exclusively on Windows Phone 7 and we will not ship KIN in Europe this fall as planned. Additionally, we are integrating our KIN team with the Windows Phone 7 team, incorporating valuable ideas and technologies from KIN into future Windows Phone releases. "
Microsoft released two models of the Kin in early May, the Kin One and Kin Two. Both featured touchscreens and slide-out keyboards. The Kin Two (shown on the left in the photo above) was the higher-end handset, featuring an 8-megapixel camera and a camcorder that can capture video at 720p resolution.
The marquee feature of both phones, though, was the way they integrate your favorite social networks. They feature a home screen that allows you to update your Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace status, and view status updates from your friends and contacts

I heard they only sold 500 in the first month launch haha
The sad part is that it also signifies the end of the Sidekick since the same team that designed the KIN is (according to reports) the danger team that Microsoft got when they bought Danger. T-Mobile has already announced the end of sales of Sidekick devices.
The kin was an ugly a$$ phone in my opinion, microsoft should worry more on windows 7 phone
