The Zune Phone Arriveth

It’s called the KIN and it comes in two flavors…

So, the KIN likes to slide.


Slide, DMaggio, SLIDE!


So check it out. Could this make any headway against iPhone, Android, or anything else? Don’t be shy about posting up your thoughts.

  1. When I actually got to the features… it was pretty cool. The website is really bad though.

    I really like the syunchronous storage with your PC and no need for storage on the phone. The timeline is super cool.

  2. The Kin Two looks promising. It’s time for MS to step up to the plate…as they are currently so far behind in this playing field.

    I would like to see the hardware keyboard gain a Windows, CTRL, & Tab key. Keyboard shortcuts are where it’s at.

    iPhone will always have it’s following, because apple will always have a following and is AWESOME about marketing. Not to mention they can water down a product for the masses to operate without using more than a single brain cell.

    Droid is a growing contender. Who would have thought Linux would upscale MS in the mobile phone market?

    Heck, I ended my 7yr relationship with Windows Mobile for a Sprint Samsung Moment powered by the Android OS. Not the most stylish phone I have bought…but it has it where it counts. Speed of the hardware, Responsiveness in the OS, hardware keyboard, and gorgeous touch screen.

    That being said, I want to see this Zune phone. Is this the tiled WM7 OS everyone has been waiting for?

  3. The feature I want most in my next phone: A web browser that doesn’t suck. Opera is OK, but lordy I hate me some IE mobile something fierce!
