The Microsoft press conference isn't over, but we've already got all the info we need. Microsoft has just launched, the Internet hub for their new line of phones. Both of these devices look very impressive. Microsoft has geared them to be social media/content sharing devices first and foremost. The whole purpose of the Kins is to make using and interacting with social media sites like Facebook and Twitter convenient and easy.

The specs page is woe-fully light on details. We know now that the Kin 1 (previously the Turtle) sports a 5 MP shooter with flash, mono speakers, 4 GB of on-board storage, Zune media player, and a small touchscreen. The Kin 2 has a larger sliding keyboard, larger touchscreen, and an 8 megapixel camera with flash that can also shoot HD video. These are very definitely not crappy tween texting phones. The Kin 2 has 8 GB of on-board storage and stereo-speakers. (For a liveblog of the event, check out Gearlog)
