  1. It's official: the Kin phones are dead. Disappointed by an abysmal performance, Verizon has ceased sales of the social networking devices, pulling both from its site and shipping the remaining supply back to Redmond.

    Its probably for the best considering the windows7 phone coming out soon
  3. The devices were to ugly. In this day and age your phone is part of your look, just as much as the clothes you wear and whatever else you have on.

    To me it seems really hard to make an ugly phone since making just a rectangular flat phone like the iphone and many others with this shape fit it just fine.

    I desperately hope I never fall to a level that you find yourself at... its a part of your look? Its an f'ing electronic device, if thats what you need to socialize its beyond sad.

    Also, this phone simply proved that any loser who depends on "social" networking 24/7 already had a computer and sat in front of it all day, they didn't need a phone to pull it off.
