Verizon Wireless, "cut the price of its two Microsoft's Kin models about a month after the phones' release. The Kin One now sells for $29.99, down from $49.99, with a $100 discount and a two-year contract, according to Basking Ridge, New Jersey-based Verizon's website. The price of the Kin Two, which has a larger screen and takes sharper photos, has been reduced to $49.99 from $99.99, according to the site."
Verizon spokeswoman Brenda Raney said the new pricing is part of a broader set of price reductions. The company is "comfortable" with the way the Kin is being accepted, she said. Katy Asher, a spokeswoman for Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft, declined to comment.
