Not that it comes as a surprise to many, but following Microsoft's termination of the KIN project a few weeks ago, Verizon has officially discontinued sales of the KIN One and Two.  A quick visit to the company's website confirms that the devices are in fact gone, and a call into telesales yielded similar results.  The news follows a screenshot obtained by PhoneArena, in which Verizon retail stores were told to discontinue sales of the two devices on July 18th.

As it stands, Microsoft will continue to provide crucial back-end services, so KIN owners can rest easy.  That being said, few devices were sold, so I'm guessing support will wane pretty quickly.  For the few brave users that remain, how do you feel about Big Red's decision?
