On April 12, Microsoft announced two new mobile handsets, the KIN ONE and the KIN TWO. These devices were targeted at the younger social networking crowd. At the time of the unveiling, Verizon Wireless was the exclusive carrier, but it looks like the exclusivity might be short-lived. According to the findings of a well-known Windows Mobile ROM hacker, the KIN OS system provisioning files consist of carrier files for T-Mobile USA, AT&T, and a whole bunch of other overseas carriers. Of course, these could just be temporary files created for demonstrating the handsets to the carriers on their own networks back when Microsoft was originally pitching them. So, until we have further confirmation, please take this with a grain of salt. Leave your thoughts in the comments!
