Tween creates KIN shirt

During our romps around the blogosphere, we’ve encountered our fair share of KIN-bashing.  To be fair, we also found some tech bloggers who managed to set down their Starbucks latte, shut their MacBooks, and momentarily transplant themselves into the shoes of a so-called member of the “upload generation” for a spin with the KIN.  As it would seem, looking at the KINthrough the eyes of Microsoft’s tween target market (sorry, hipsters) may be the best approach — and 175,000 KIN Facebook fans seem to back us up on this conclusion.

Our friends over at Pocketnow have been keeping a watchful eye on the KIN’s Facebook group where an army of tweens that has rapidly grown to more than 175,000 strong have decided to express themselves in the only way they know how — by hitting the “like” button.  The Facebook group’s wall is abuzz, and comments seem to be pretty KINd to Microsoft’s social networking-centric cell phone duo:

Amy Fudally – I got my kin today! It is worth every penny. It comes in the cutest recycled packaging!

Marcel Aaron Woodruff – I just got my KIN yesterday and boy do i love it . I just wish it wold have came out sooner …

Sonny Jones – This KIN is pretty sweet. I have been using it all night. it makes everything so simple and the style is pretty sweet too!!!!!

Cara Cattell Florence – Buying the Kin One soon, this week or the next! After a four year search and a horrible trial through the T-Mobile Slide, this is the one phone that will work for chronic hand issues including fibro and arthritis. I love you guys for making this phone, it may literally save my life someday.

Nhung Kim Phan – Just played with the Kin – cute!!! At first, seems different, maybe weird, but its totally fun after awhile!

Lara Bradley Wyss – I cannot wait to get my KIN One next week!!!!

Roy Mullis – I love you, Kin!!!!!

Jim Simmers – I love KIN

Rosie Henriquez – Ok people are saying I’m a complete goof for following this, Rosa and her Journey, I think I will be getting the Kin..she makes it look fun and easy to use no?

Anthony James Freeman – I’ve been following the Kin for a long time now thanks to my dad on the pink team. I cant wait to finally own my own Kin.
