The Microsoft Store only sells Android smartphones
Those who were still hoping to see some new Windows 10 Mobile handsets seem to have nothing left to expect for. When even the Microsoft Store has no more Windows phones in stock and many essential apps for a smartphone no longer receive updates, it is clear that the mobile operating system in question is going through its final period.
The last two mobile devices with Windows onboard available in the Microsoft Store were the Alcatel Idol 4S and the HP Elite x3. Sadly, none of them managed to gain a significant share of the market, even after the multiple price cuts that pushed the prices all the way down to US$300 for the Elite x3 and only US$100 for the Idol 4S — or US$169 with the VR goggles included.
Now, those who visit the Microsoft Store can get one of the following handsets: the Razer Phone, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, and the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Since the listings of the two Windows handsets mentioned earlier are still up on the Microsoft Store, there might be a chance for the Redmond giant to have some units stored somewhere. Even if this fails, those interesting in buying a Windows mobile should be able to find plenty of them on Amazon and/or eBay.
Microsoft was in the mobile sector for almost two decades. Windows Mobile arrived in 2000, being replaced by Windows Phone in 2010. Windows 10 Mobile arrived in 2015 but failed to survive in a market where it doesn't seem to be much room left.
