Verizon Confirms Kin’s Death

Posted by at 2:33 pm on July 19, 2010

Verizon today confirmed that it was pulling the Kin from stores early. The carrier is no longer selling the Kin One or Kin Two either online or at retail.

The early departure brings a complete end to the Kin line, which was cancelled at the end of June after just over six weeks on the market. This despite the fact Verizon still has Kins in the channel.

Neither  Verizon nor  Microsoft  has been willing to confirm the final sales figures, but as of the final shutdown of sales the Kin’s Facebook app registered just 9,705 active users. Kin Studio and other back-end services are still expected to run for the time being.
