Here, take a last look at Microsoft's Kin One and Two, because they have only survived a few weeks. In case you didnt know, the Kin's twin phones are Microsoft's latest attempt on the smartphone market which is well dominated by Apple's iPhone. Apparently, the Kin phones was not well received due to the unfriendly OS, expensive price tag, no games, no apps and its not cool. So Microsoft decided to pull off the plug on them.
Microsoft, as we all know, has the money to spend on these projects to test the market. And if they doesnt work out, Microsoft just stop funding them and move on to other more profitable products.
Creative is a smaller company as compared to Microsoft and does not have millions of dollars to waste. So Creative needs to be laser sharp on the products they launch and must make sure that they are successful. Creative just cannot afford to fail like that.
