KIN's BIN, what's missing…

12 Apr

Now that yo probably know enough about what’s there on the KIN phones, here’s what isn’t:

APPS: With KIN, Microsoft wanted to have a cool phone without stealing WP7’s thunder. What do they do? Deprive it of apps. So basically no third party apps, not even Java apps…

IM: The KIN is supposed to be a social networking phone and surprisingly it doesn’t have an IM client! Yup, no chatting. You can only Tweet or write on other people’s Facebook wall and do whatever you do on MySpace. That’s it!

Games: We don’t see any games menu from the videos we have seen so far! Now why would Microsoft do that? How are users supposed to kill time, see what their friends are eating?

Basically, this is a what you see is what you get product at the moment. Whatever you get right out of the box is all that you will ever get. Unless, of course, Microsoft decides to do something about it. And we hope they do something…
