Microsoft Kin Two gets torn apart, reveals Sony image sensor

Donald Melanson of Endgadget writes: "Sure, we already know most of the Kin Two's main specs, but there's nothing like a proper teardown to find out exactly what makes something tick, and the folks from Chipworks have now kindly ripped one apart so you don't have to. Among the highlights are the expected NVIDIA Tegra APX2600 processor, a slew of chips and memory from the likes of Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, Hynix, and Samsung and, perhaps most notably, an image sensor from none other than Sony."

thats what makes me made when people say microsoft has all this money to through around and i am like "sony is a large company also that could through around money" but thats not how sony is.

oh and yeah i know microsoft is one of the wealthiest companies but sony is also very wealthy . games are such a small part of both.

Christopher2835d ago

Sony is one of the top manufacturers of photo and video equipment. Their technology is used worldwide in millions of products. It's only sensible.

randomwiz2835d ago

I agree with you for the most part, but its ignorant to say games are such a small part of both.

Games are a big part of both, although most of Microsoft's money is made from Windows 7, the Xbox 360 also plays a big role in its revenue.

darkmurder2835d ago

Not really, they brought in last quarter about 170 million in profit out of MS' 14 billion overall revenue.

Christopher2835d ago

Yeah, Microsoft's gaming division brings in less than 1% of Microsoft's profit each year, that's with reduced manufacturing costs on the 360 even.

Currently, the video game market isn't that profitable for Microsoft or Sony.

And Sony Vaios run Windows....

Outside of video gaming there is very little competition between MS and Sony, and alot of partnerships.

MaximusPaynicus2835d ago

...Sony Ericsson phones, like the Aspen, running on Windows Mobile 6.5. At best this is non-news, at worst it's Engadget fishing for hits.

kneon2835d ago

Shhh!!! That's blasphemy!! What if the fanboys hear you?

BubbleSystemSuck2835d ago


where is the aricle "OMG, SONY Vaio Notebooks have installed MICROSOFT Windows 7"!!!!!

Godmars2902835d ago

Okay, screw most, all off the shelf PC have it. Through deals MS struck, not because of the quality of the product.

Most versions of Internet Explorer say that.

Keep up the good fight and don't let the other side win : )

Morgue2835d ago

Yeah I remember seeing a MS commercial and almost everything in the house was Sony. The television, the computer. Who cares...

JokesOnYou2835d ago (Edited 2835d ago )
