Microsoft Kin - Social Phones For The Youth Innit!

Actually I'm pretty sure that any self respecting social butterfly under the age of 21 either has or is lusting after an iPhone, but Microsoft is hoping to build on the success of the Sidekick by launching a two device range of Kin phones - apparently based around a cut down version of Windows Phone 7 and sporting a unique 'social' interface. Its clear who Microsoft is aiming at with these phones, not so sure that they'll have the sparkle to steal huge numbers of sales from Apple.

Interesting that Microsoft makes a big play of storing all Kin user's information in the cloud, especially given the recent loss of data experienced by Sidekick users hit by the recent server-side problems experienced by Microsoft...
