    Hey Yall, I'm new here, owner of a Droid on VZW... enough about me.


    What does everybody think about the Microsoft Kin?


    My take:
    Wireless providers seem to want any phone with well designed software to use a $30/month data plan. If the Kin comes with an affordable data plan, perhaps it will be the catalyst for a whole slew of smartphones with limited data features. I would be happy to sacrifice Pandora and Youtube if it meant more affordable data. Really, not much data is required for email, wikipedia, google talk, and Astrid. Even sharing pictures online could be light on the data if our phones compressed the image prior to sending.

    looks to me like it's aimed specifically at the iphone loving teen crowds - i hope they give apple a run for their money :)

    Looks like the Sidekick reinvented - catering to the younger demographic.

    I can see a market for it.
