Kin it work? Windows Phone 6.9?

As most of you know, Microsoft is overhauling their Windows Mobile (nay Windows 7 Phone) this fall with a brand new OS and break from what WinMo used to be. Instead of a mini-computer like interface, they are going to a Zune-like feel with slices of pages.

But we are getting a preview of that with their new "social networking" phones, the Kin One and Kin Two. Not really running Windows Phone 7 and not really a dumbphone, these phones are in between, a full featured phone that's not quite a smartphone (arguably what the iPhone is).

Engadget has a review:

While interesting, I'm just wondering if partnering up with Verizon Wireless is the best decision. Since VZW has expensive plans (especially with text and data), it makes you wonder if the targeted texter/Facebooker/Tweeter will want to (or can afford to) use their service. They will be available from Verizon Wireless on May 13.
