Death of the Kin

Surpise! The Microsoft Kin was discontinued by Microsoft, and Amazon is clearancing the leftovers for a penny (with contract, of course!). I guess they just didn’t like it.

Amazon’s sales data sheds some light on why Redmond decided to axe the KIN phones. KIN Two is ranked 1,575 in the retailer’s cell phone category, while the less powerful KIN One is ranked 7,094. In other words, both phones turned out to be massive sales flops.
