Poor Kin. Nobody liked it, it was killed in just about zero time, didn’t have the functionality of a smartphone, but still cost as much to run. Microsoft’s first attempt to get into the sort-of-smartphone market was a textbook failure, with funny looking phones that weren’t quite functional enough. Universally panned, it rapidly faded from our consciousness, except as a warning story.
However, it might not be quite dead as all that! According to the official Facebook app, more than 36,000 people still use Facebook on the Kin. Sure, that’s not an army, but some people are still in board.
That warms the cockles of my heart.
