Microsoft Kin Phone Price & Release Date?

Microsoft's newest social networking phones, the Kin One and Kin Two, have a slick and intuitive user interface that's targeted at the Facebook crowd.

What is the release date of the Microsoft Kin phone and what will be the price?
I'm on social networks all the time so I'm thinking on getting one but only if the cost is not too high.

Also, what is the difference between the Kin One and the Kin Two? Is the price the same for both phone is does a phone has a higher price than the other?

Will both Kin phones have the same release date?

The Kin One and Kin Two are aimed directly at the huge category of "quick messaging phones."

I played with a Kin One and a Kin Two. The Kin phones have great keyboards. The keys are made of a firm, rubbery material. They're well-spaced, and with just enough click. Your fingers will fly on these keyboards.

While it's a bit overwhelming at first, Kin OS is visually-pleasing and incredibly easy to navigate. The main screen, called Loop, displays your selected friends' status updates and messages as well as your favorite RSS feeds in a colorful collage of text and images. Flick to the left, and you'll see a panel of all your applications; flick right, and you'll see your contacts.

The Kin phones will be released next month, but the exact release date is unknown. Also, there is no price currently.

The short and squat Kin One and the wider-screened Kin Two are two shapes for the same idea--the mobile phone for those who want to broadcast their every thought, sight, and sound--"lifecasters," as Microsoft's Robbie Bach called them. Although many phones have Facebook or Twitter applications, social networking is at the heart of the Kin. Sharing has its own dedicated green button and is at the center of the Kin experience.

The difference between the 2 kin phones?

Kin 1:
The Kin 1 is a round, puck-shaped vertical slider that is very small and pocketable. The phone has a small screen and tight keyboard. It has a 5 megapixel camera and includes 4GB of built-in storage.

Kin 2:
The Kin 2 is a larger device that has a sideways slider, large touch screen, and full QWERTY. The Kin 2 has an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash, and can capture video in HD. It has 8GB of built-in user storage.
