Will Microsoft KIN Phones Lose out to HTC Droid Incredible?
The latest handsets from Microsoft the KIN One and KIN Two have now become available, but according to an article over on strategyeye, the Microsoft KIN phones may well lose out to the likes of the HTC Droid Incredible, and even the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus.
The reason for this is Verizon Wireless has slapped large data service plans on the KIN One and KIN Two handsets which could well put the social networking younger generation, which the KIN phones target off the handsets and opt for something like the HTC Droid Incredible.
Apparently those that purchase a Microsoft KIN handset will be required to pay $70 per month on a 2 year agreement, and this could see Microsoft’s targeted younger audience stepping away from the KIN phones.
The Verizon Wireless Microsoft KIN One and KIN Two plans are made up thus, $40 per month for a traditional talk plan and then an extra $30 per month for a smartphone plan, something which commentators believe will turn many youngsters away from the KIN phones and opt for the likes of the HTC Droid Incredible.
So what are your views, has Verizon priced their plans too high for the KIN phones? Do you intend on getting a KIN handset or are you more tempted to spend you cash on the HTC Droid Incredible?
