Or for $10.00 less you can get a Palm Pre...

Not to sound like a fanboy, but after reading the Phonescoop review, I cannot imagine a single metric which the Kin is even comparable, or better yet, not-embarassingly-inferior. They both require the same data plan, only the Pre lets you tether (legally, too.)

This is a friggin pathetic effort. Even for Microsoft standards.
Gonna have to agree. for the price they want (especially data) there is NO reason someone should get this phone.
Win7, iPhone, Palm, BB, Android... why Kin?

If you want social networks - get one of the smart phones with one of the skins that integrates social networks.

Like say... MotoBlur or TouchFlo...

Doesn't seem to be anything to set "Kin" ahead of...
