These Internal Videos Show Why The Microsoft Kin Was Such a Total Disaster

Illustration for article titled These Internal Videos Show Why The Microsoft Kin Was Such a Total Disaster

Long before the Windows Phones we have today, there was another: the Kin. You may remember it...as being total garbage. Well now you can relive the horror with some previously unreleased videos WIRED dug up and watch Microsoft's own Kin testers recoiling in disgust.

As these testers show, the performance was pretty dismal. A far cry from Windows Phone. Microsoft can't be all too happy about these videos finally seeing the light of day, but it's all in the past, so we can have a good laugh about it, can't we? At least none of us are using Kins.

I have the larger Kin model and haven't really had any complaints. I wasn't looking for a personal smart phone at the time, and the Kin had some pretty decent features at a low price point. The Camera is also pretty nice.
