As most of us remember from before the Kin One and Kin Two by Microsoft were two phones on Verizon that flopped pretty badly. Nobody wanted to pay for the ridiculous data plan required to own that phone so it was quickly taken off of the line up for Verizon smartphones. To be perfectly honest it was only smart enough for tweens, teens, and young adults who did not need their phones for business. Now seeing this as a problem Verizon is bringing them back without the ridiculous data plan, but at least you can still use your Zune Pass over wi-fi. Despite all of this it does not seem they are bringing the Kin One and Kin Two back for the purposes of adding to their phone line up, but it seems more like they need more storage room for better devices and need to sell these of as soon as they can.
