Verizon slashed the price of Microsoft’s slow selling Kin phones. That’s never a good sign. From Rik Myslewski in The Register:
Just six weeks after release, the biscuit-shaped Kin One now costs a mere $29.99 with a two-year plan and a side-sliding Kin Two, $49.99. At those prices, may we suggest that it would make more sense for Verizon to simply give the poor things away — it might at least then make a few bucks on wireless charges.
Kin is on life support. It’s time to pull the plug.
