As he explained by the President of Entertainment and Devices at Microsoft, Robbie Bach, "working closely with our partners saw an opportunity to design a specific mobile experience for the social generation," and so did KIN. "We have created KIN for people who live connected by sharing and speaking with friends and family," he said.

With KIN, social networking is part of the structure of the phone. KIN has an interface designed to make it easy to publish content in social networks instead of focusing on menus and icons. The design has been developed in partnership with Sharp to create a new kind of social phone. There are two models called KIN ONE and KIN TWO.

Both feature a touch screen and sliding keyboard. ONE is small and compact and is designed for small spaces and handling with one hand. TWO has a larger screen and keyboard, more memory and a higher resolution camera and the ability to record HD video. Cameras 5 to 8 megapixel ONE and TWO, respectively, are designed for use in low light, and come with image stabilizer and flash LumiLED.

The phone's home screen is called KIN Loop, and is always updated showing the latest and social networks. KIN automatically provides service updates of Microsoft and other companies like Facebook, MySpace and Twitter in one place, allowing users to be connected more easily. Users can also select their favorite people, and KIN will automatically prioritize their status updates, messages, feeds and photos.

On the other hand, KIN Spot is a new way to share "what's going on in your world." This allows them to focus on the people and things you want to share rather than the specific applications you want to use. Videos, photos, text messages, web pages, location and status updates are shared by simply dragging them to the same place on the phone called Spot. When all the people and content are in the Spot the user can choose how to share, and start broadcasting.

KIN Studio is your phone online. Almost everything you create on your phone is available in the "cloud" from any browser. The photos and videos appear online in a timeline which helps to share and display. KIN Studio automatically uploads to the "cloud" text messages, call log, photos, videos etc. and complete a digital diary to analyze the data for days.

KIN will be the first Windows Phone to offer the Zune experience, including music, video, FM radio and playback postcast. Users can purchase a subscription to Zune Marketplace that allows them to access the Bank tunes. KIN also has a rich browser that allows you to share information searches and an RSS reader to download information sources for people and the web.

KIN will be available exclusively with Verizon Wireless in the United States in May and Fall Vodafone in Spain, Italy, Germany and the UK.
