When the Microsoft Kin first launched, our knowledge of its specs was pretty limited. We had some basic details about the One and Two, but no real hardware details. Now Gdgt has posted the specs for both the Kin One and Kin Two. Some mysteries do not last long.

The Kin One has a standby battery life of 210 hours. It has a 5 MP camera, video recording, autofocus, digital zoom, and a Flash. There's a GPS and A-GPS, 4 GB of internal memory, b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, a 600 MHz processor, and 256 MB of RAM. The Kin Two sports a 232 hour standby life, and all of the same bell's and whistles as the One. It adds in 8 GB of memory.

Both devices have an accelerometer, ambient light, and proximity sensors. In terms of speed and RAM, neither Kin is going to change the world. They should be fast enough for what they are built for, though.
