Microsoft Kin Phone Dead: Reasons

Microsoft had hoped to make a good impression on the cell phone market by offering two new handsets – the Kin One and Kin Two. Both handsets were designed for those who spend a lot of time on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. This handset is now dead, once current stock has gone that’s it.

There are a number of reasons why this is, but let us not get away from the fact at how bad this is for the software giant – spending two-years developing something that has been discontinued in just two-days.

Joshua Topolsky from Engadget has been offering some insight into just what went wrong.

What do you think the reasons are why Microsoft Kin failed?
