Microsoft recently indicated that Windows Phone 7 and KIN share a more integrated future than may have been previously understood. A Microsoft spokesperson told Phone Scoop via email, "Both KIN and Windows Phone 7 share common OS components, software and services. We will seek to align around a single platform for both products as well as consistent hardware specifications, so we can drive our ecosystem at scale and strength across all products." Microsoft didn't say that the platforms themselves woud merge or that one would go away, but the underlying fundamentals will be held together by core technologies to make developing for both platforms easier. Windows Phone 7 and KIN both run on Microsoft's Silverlight technology. Windows Phone 7 also includes Microsoft's XNA code.
