Microsoft KIN Two (Verizon) - $99, Available Now


Ditto what I wrote about KIN One, except you get a larger display and better camera with HD video capture. But that 8MP camera is marred by ergonomic issues with the phone's design that make for way too many shaky-hand photos and videos. If I were going KIN, I'd go Kin Two thanks to its widescreen design and two-thumb friendly QWERTY board. But I'd go Pre Plus or Droid Incredible before I'd go with either KIN on Verizon.
