Review: Kin Two

Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's Touch

Microsoft's new Kin Two on Verizon Wireless is a social networking magnet with a style all its own. Did Microsoft sacrifice too many features to bring this youthful smartphone to the masses? Find out in our full review.

The Kin Two is clearly meant for the Sidekick crowd, and I'm not just saying that because Danger, the team behind the original Sidekick, is now part of Microsoft. The phone screams hipster in almost every way. The minimalist front face, the offset fonts on the keyboard, the magazine style interface, and even the unique, tubular packaging are all self-consciously cool. And like the cool kids in high school, the Kin Two can be attractive and fun, but it also lacks depth and substance.
