Microsoft's KIN may be dead but it keeps on ticking. Microsoft has released an update for the KIN that offers minor functionality changes. Not enough for resuscitation but the update is reported to include the following:
- Twitter avatars showing up in the KIN Loop
- Changes to Twitter status appearance
- Re-tweets by contacts show up in the Loop
- Twitter contact profiles show up
- Twitter contacts can now be pinned to Favorites.
Rumors were circulating that Microsoft was working on a KIN update to give it more functionality that included better Twitter integration. This may have been the last item on the KIN Team's "to do" list before they turned off the lights completely.
The software version is 1.0 build 2814.0 and can be accessed through the KIN's Over-the-Air update system.
