Microsoft hasn’t launched a new Windows Phone for more than a year now. The rumour has it that there won’t be any new Windows Phones from Microsoft this year too. Alcatel has recently launched the Idol 4 Pro in the Europe. While on other hand, it is now difficult to get the carrier-locked Windows Phone in the US.
AT&T and T-Mobile have already abandoned the Microsoft’s Windows Phone. Cricket Wireless and Verizon have had one phone in stock. Cricket Wireless is now no longer selling the Lumia 635 while the Lumia 735 is listed as coming soon on Verizon.
Lumia 735 will be soon back in stock on Verizon but it looks like Cricket Wireless won’t sell Windows Phone anymore. Recently, T-Mobile also ended the sale of the Alcatel Idol 4S in the US.
If you are in the US and looking for a carrier-locked Windows Phone, Lumia 735 is the only available option. You can still buy the unlocked Windows Phones from Microsoft. Nonetheless, it is sad to see the Windows Phones fading into darkness.
