The Kin Two is a horizontal slider with a full QWERTY keypad tucked under its face. The keypad is wide enough to make mistyping difficult, but a bit short. As with the Kin One, the number keys are all arranged on the top row of keys, a configuration Blackberry users will have to get used to.
The screen view can go from horizontal to vertical based on which way the phone is turned. The screen has touch screen options for zoom, moving left to right and back through panels, and making selections.
There's a back button below the screen and an earpiece above the screen. Volume and photo capture keys are on the right side of the phone, a USB port is on the bottom, a headphone jack is on the top, the power button is on the top right corner, and the back of the phone has the flash and lens for the 8.0-megapixel camera/camcorder.
The Kin Two has a sleeker look and a larger screen than the Kin One. At 4.7 ounces, it's about 0.8 ounce heavier than the original, but most will appreciate the extra space, especially people that like to see things in a larger font. It may not turn heads, but that may be the idea.
