The Wall Street Journal tweeted today that Microsoft axed the Kin. It appears that Microsoft's timing could have been better. The Kin was released while Apple fans lined up to buy the latest version of the iPhone. Apple has made a huge comeback in recent years. The fact that the iPhone sold out so quickly tells you that Apple knows what its customers want and delivers it to them. It looks like Microsoft is guessing what their customers want and is off target. For now at least, Microsoft's loss is your gain. If you are into social networking and don't need all of those iPhone apps, then the Kin is worth the look. It really is a good phone for what it does. You can buy the Microsoft Kin for a penny while supplies last. You can also check out a Microsoft Kin review here. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to seeing Microsoft's next innovation.
