Microsoft's new angle in the phone market

As Microsoft's market share in the cellphone market continues to slide, the company has taken a fresh approach with the Kin One and Kin Two. The new operating system represents a polar opposite compared to the company's Windows Mobile platform. Social networking is the new focus, with all of the features built around Facebook Twitter, MySpace and RSS feeds. The phones cannot be categorized as smartphones or feature phones. In our comprehensive Kin review, we'll explore the new OS and determine if it is an innovative alternative to existing platforms.

    Trailing.

    mainly social networking? That alienates a large part of the market, including me.

    Good lord

    That is some of the worst layout I have ever seen. Why spend so much money appealing to a demographic and then completely ignore what they want visually?

    We all know the answer but hey, producing a product that the market 'seems' to want is what they're good at.

    How can you have such a vast sea of talent and produce such rubbish?
