Microsoft KIN Video Overview

We have received review units for the KIN One and Two and over the next few days we'll be taking them out for a test drive to see what these new Windows Phones are all about.

In the meantime, we put together a brief video overview on the two KIN phones. The initial impression of the KIN series is that if your a heavy Facebook or Twitter user, the KIN might be right up your ally. I wouldn't consider it a replacement for your Windows Mobile Phone running Windows Mobile but rather an alternative for those who don't need as much.

Note: In the video it is mentioned that the KIN doesn't have any Function Keys. The KIN does have a function key (the green key) that will allow you to key in numbers and characters. What it doesn't have is function key shortcuts to launch apps such as the browser or email.
