The Kin Two, along with the Kin One, will be available in Verizon stores starting May 13. The cost of the Kin Two is $99.99 with a two-year contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate. Both devices will also require a $29.99 unlimited data plan.

Unlike the Kin One, the Kin Two has a more traditional touch-screen phone design. It measures 4.25 inches tall by 2.5 inches wide by 0.75 inch thick and weighs 4.7 ounces, so it's a bit hefty but feels solid in the hand.

The Kin Two's keyboard is reminiscent of the Sidekick LX's--not surprising since the Kin phones are made by Sharp, which also made the Sidekick for Danger and is now a part of the Microsoft family after the April 2008 acquisition. The circular buttons are on the smaller side, but there's a nice amount of spacing between them so that cuts down on any mispresses.

On the bottom, you'll find a Micro-USB port.

The right side of the phone features a volume rocker and a camera activation/capture button. The camera key, however, is placed awkwardly on a downward slope, which made it difficult to press and often resulted in a fuzzy image.

The Kin Two is equipped with an 8-megapixel camera and flash and can record HD video.

Despite having an 8-megapixel camera, we weren't terribly impressed by the photo quality. The colors were a bit washed out and the overall image looked soft.
