So, the KIN phones are now shipping if you’ve ordered from the Verizon website and they’ll be available in stores today. The KIN Facebook page has well over 170,000 fans so far, it keeps growing, and it’s seeing a lot of action. In addition to questions, many people are posting their opinions on the Facebook page and below you’ll see a sampling of the buzz we’re hearing. Even though tech-reviewers give it bad reviews it sounds like this may be exactly what the “upload generation” was actually looking for.
