Microsoft Announces KIN Release Dates

Microsoft Announces KIN Release Dates

Microsoft’s phones for the teens – KIN One and KIN Two will be available from Verizon starting May 6th online and May 13th in stores.

In a presspass, Microsoft has detailed information regarding prices of the two KIN devices. The devices will be available with Verizon in a two contract. The prices are:

  • KIN One – $49.99
  • KIN TWO – $99.9

The catch here is that buyers will have to subscribe for Verizon’s Nationwide Talk and Email and Web plan. Given the social aspect of the phone, these plans make sense:

  • The Nationwide Talk plans begin at $39.99 per month.
  • Email and Web for Smartphone plans start at $29.99 for unlimited access, per month.

Engadget has a lengthy hands-on review of both the KIN One and KIN Two.
