Microsoft and Verizon Wireless may relaunch the KIN ONE and the KIN TWO on Verizon Wireless, this time as feature phones.

According to Engadget, which confirmed that the devices will launch again, the phones will not have bundled data services such as the Loop feature, which allowed users to store photos and more on the web. Zune Pass sync will still be possible through a Wi-Fi connection if you don't have a data plan.

The devices appeared on a Verizon Wireless roadmap first spotted by PPCGeeks.

Microsoft announced the KIN ONE and the KIN TWO in May of this year. The devices launched shortly after and we reviewed both the KIN ONE and the KIN TWO before Verizon Wireless decided to pull the devices just two months after their launch, on July 19, 2010.
