Microsoft abandona la venta del móvil juvenil “Kin”

1 julio, 2010

Microsoft anunció hoy que cancela la fabricación de sus teléfonos móviles “Kin”, pensados para adolescentes usuarios de redes sociales de internet, para centrarse en el Windows Phone 7.

Microsoft puso a la venta dos tipos de Kin en EE.UU. el pasado 13 de mayo valorados entre 50 y 100 dólares y tenía previsto comercializar el dispositivo en Europa en los últimos meses del año, algo que ya no se producirá.

La empresa, no obstante, continuará trabajando con el operador telefónico Verizon para despachar el inventario de “Kin” existente en EE.UU.

“Hemos tomado la decisión de centrarnos en el lanzamiento de nuestro Windows Phone 7,” afirmó Microsoft en un comunicado difundido hoy, en el que se aseguró que el equipo dedicado a Kin pasará a formar parte del personal que trabaja en el desarrollo del Windows Phone 7 (WP7), que llegará al mercado en octubre.

Según la web tecnológica Gizmodo, la decisión de Microsoft se fundamentó en las escasas ventas de”Kin”.

Desde Msnbc, medio de comunicación formado por Microsoft y NBC Universal, se calificó al “Kin” de “elefante blanco” ya que, a pesar de su funcionalidad y conexión con redes sociales de internet, las tarifas de uso eran tan altas como las de los teléfonos de alta gama pero sin ofrecer los mismos servicios.

La compañía señaló que los avances de “Kin” serán aplicados en los próximos WP7, con los que Microsoft confía en competir con el iPhone, Blackberry y otros teléfonos de los llamados “inteligentes”.

      The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

      I drop a comment each time I especially enjoy a post on a site or if I have something to contribute to the conversation. Usually it is a result of the passion displayed in the article I looked at. And after this post Microsoft abandona la venta del móvil juvenil “Kin” | Gadgetmania. I was excited enough to post a commenta response :-P I do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not mind. Could it be simply me or do some of these remarks come across as if they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on additional online sites, I’d like to keep up with you. Could you make a list the complete urls of your public pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
