Microsoft announced today the death of the Kin, six weeks after it was launched. The company also said that the phone will not be available in Europe this fall as they had previously announced. Check out the official statement from Microsoft:
We have made the decision to focus exclusively on Windows Phone 7 and we will not ship KIN in Europe this fall as planned. Additionally, we are integrating our KIN team with the Windows Phone 7 team, incorporating valuable ideas and technologies from KIN into future Windows Phone releases. We will continue to work with Verizon in the U.S. to sell current KIN phones.
