Microsoft Kin 1 & 2 Announced

The Microsoft press conference isn't over, but we've already got all the info we need. Microsoft has just launched www.kin.com, 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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
