Today Microsoft issued a statement on its Kin social networking devices, which are being sold by Verizon Wireless. A Microsoft spokesperson said to Phone Scoop in an email, "We have made the decision to focus exclusively on Windows Phone 7 and we will not ship Kin in Europe this fall as planned. Additionally, we are integrating our Kin team with the Windows Phone 7 team, incorporating valuable ideas and technologies from Kin into future Windows Phone releases. We will continue to work with Verizon in the U.S. to sell current KIN phones." When asked for comment, Verizon Wireless spokesperson Brenda Raney said, "Kin is still an important part of our portfolio. [Verizon can't] speak for Microsoft." The Kin One and Kin Two were launched via Verizon Wireless in early May.
