Microsoft tech says Kin update due thie summer

Microsoft's Kin handsets will soon receive a software update that would bring with it added features. Responding to a user complaint on the company's Social forums, a moderator confirmed this update. Details of the update aren't known, but the moderator does say that the update will address many of the user's concerns, which include unprompted shutdowns, a lack of a reply or retweet button and the inability to comment inside Twitter Replies or tweet quotes.

Another complaint centered around the lack of YouTube access. One well-respected forum user, Conflipper, says the update will bring with it Twitter Replies, Retweet and the ability to view more than three Facebook pictures. [via WMPowerUser]

    A polished t*** is still a t***

    I doubt this update will address the Kin's fundamental inability to do anything productive.
