Default Microsoft Kin and Windows Phone 7

"Microsoft's elimination of its Kin phones indicate that the company is continuing to sweep aside what it sees as unnecessary consumer projects in favor of focusing on Windows Phone 7, its upcoming mobile platform designed to compete with the Apple iPhone 4 and Google Android smartphones."

The author paints a picture of a Microsoft that's laagering up and focusing on Windows Phone 7 to rescue its mobile presence. I'm not sure if this characterisation/interpretation of Microsoft actions are correct, what with Windows embedded muddying the waters, but the article presents a decent overview of the Kin's demise and what it means for Windows Phone 7.

He walks along most daintily, because his balls are crystal."
