The Kin is dead! Long live the Kin!

It seems that Microsoft is trying to avoid landfilling all those Kins they didn't sell. This time around they're going to try and make them available with something approaching a legitimate plan. It seems they have learned that folks really don't want to buy an expensive smart phone plan for something that is not a smart phone.

I'm not sure I would want people even to be thinking about the Kin if I was them. It seems like that would be an embarrassment they would want to forget. The only way you're going to reduce the embarrassment is if people forget about the Kin or it is turned into a success. I am not sure how many they will sell but for their sake I hope it cuts their losses noticeably since it's going to prolong something that is not good for their image.
