KIN

Smartphones from Microsoft that were designed to integrate social media. Made by Sharp and introduced by Verizon in May 2010 in the U.S., the KIN featured a slide-out keyboard and online storage for the phone's photos and videos. Six weeks after its debut, the KIN ONE and KIN TWO were discontinued due to poor sales. The phone came from Microsoft's 2008 acquisition of smartphone creator Danger, Inc. (see SideKick) and was a departure from previous Windows Mobile phones. Although elements may have been under the covers, KIN did not use the subsequent Windows Phone interface (see Windows Phone).
