We'd already heard some talk that Microsoft's Kin One and Kin Two
phones might be in store for an update
, and it looks like the phones will indeed be getting one sooner rather than later. While it remains to be seen if it will include those rumored IM improvements, a Kin support moderator has confirmed on the Microsoft Answers forum that an update is scheduled for "mid-summer," and that it will address "many" of the concerns laid out in the post that prompted the response. That included complaints about battery issues, a suggestion for improvements to the Twitter client (including replies and re-tweets), and a plea for YouTube support. The seemingly in-the-know Conflipper
also backs up the inclusion of those Twitter updates, and says the Facebook app will also be updated to let folks view more than three pictures.
