Microsoft’s online safety team tweeted its apology and said the inappropriate portion of the video had been removed. “Less than a week after its unveiling, Kin mobile phone, Microsoft faced a bit of a controversy when Consumer Reports and others pointed out that a portion of one of its promotional videos looked a lot like an endorsement of "sexting" -- the practice of sending explicit photos and text messages. Microsoft is targeting the phones to teenagers and twenty-somethings.” "The video (embedded below – past 32 sec), includes a downright creepy sequence in which a young man is putting a Kin under his shirt and apparently snapping a picture of one of his naked breasts. The breast is then shown on the phone's screen, just before the guy apparently sends it to someone. Next we see the face of a young woman, seemingly the recipient, with an amused expression on her face."
