Mobile phone carrier Verizon Wireless has made available for purchase on its airwaves two new devices, the KIN ONEm and KIN TWOm, which should be pretty familiar for some of the carrier's users, who bought the already phased out KIN ONE or KIN TWO devices from the company.
Although we considered the KIN devices dead and buried
, it appears that Microsoft and Verizon still have some plans for them, and that the two handsets are back in stock for those who would like to make a purchase.
The KIN ONEm was added to the carrier's offering with a price tag of $19.99 attached to it if purchased with a two-year contract agreement, while being priced at $119.99 without a contract.
As for the KIN TWOm, it was made available for purchase at $49.99 with a contract, while being priced at $219.99 at full retail.
The price plans on which these handsets
were made available for purchase start at $39.99 for voice and $9.99 for 25MB of data.
For what it's worth, the new offering seems more appealing that the previous one, which had the handsets available on plans that started at $70 per month.
KIN ONEm sports a 2.6-inch touchscreen display
, a slide out QWERTY Keyboard, 5.0MP camera with auto-focus, Wi–Fi (802.11 b/g), 3.5mm Audio Jack, 4GB of ROM, HTML Browser, and fast access to social networks (Facebook, MySpace, Twitter).
KIN TWOm packs a 3.4” touchscreen display, Slide–out QWERTY Keyboard, 8.0 megapixel photo snapper with HD Video recording, Wi–Fi, 8GB of internal memory, and access to social networks (Facebook, MySpace, Twitter) via web browser.
“When you’re constantly on the go, your text messages and voice mail are your lifelines. With the new KIN TWOm phone
from Verizon Wireless, all your voice mail, text and picture messages are easy to find in one location,” the wireless carrier states.
“Its slide out QWERTY keyboard makes texting a snap. The KIN TWOm’s bright touch screen is ideal for browsing the web, checking your e-mail and calendar, listening to music, as well as viewing your pictures and videos taken with the 8MP camera.”KIN
