Last year Microsoft confirmed that Windows Phone is no
longer supported, but even after that point, the company sold
some Windows 10 Mobile devices on its online store. In April,
we reported that
there are zero Windows Phones in stock at the Microsoft
Store.

This month, Microsoft Store has once again started selling the
HP Elite x3 and Alcatel IDOL 4S with Windows 10 Mobile. You can
still purchase the HP Elite x3 for $299 and Alcatel
IDOL 4s with VR goggles in a bundle for $169. Obviously, the
physical Microsoft Stores also have some Windows Phones in
stock.

If you are still interested in a Windows Phone, you can buy the
phones from the Microsoft Store as the remaining stock could
finish soon.

A big deal was made about a month ago when the Microsoft Store
stopped selling Windows Phones and the people also speculated
that the software giant gave up trying to sell the phones with
a dead OS.

Both HP Elite x3 and Alcatel IDOL 4S are considered by many to
be one of the best flagship smartphones that run the Windows 10
Mobile.
Microsoft last month told us that the company will continue to
sell the third-party Windows Phones as the customers are
still interested.

Of course, the comeback of HP Elite x3 and Alcatel IDOL 4S
isn’t a huge endorsement for the Windows Phone platform
which is currently being phased out on the Microsoft Store and
ecosystem.

It’s worth noting that Microsoft Store in Europe is also
selling the Windows Phones. In Australia,
Microsoft is still promoting the flagship handset HP Elite x3
on its online store. While Windows Phone has been
discontinued, it would be dishonest to say that the Microsoft
has completely abandoned the smartphones powered by Windows 10
operating system.

If you are interested in Windows Phones, you can buy the
HP Elite x3 and
Alcatel IDOL 4S
from the Microsoft Store.

Microsoft itself has abandoned its mobile platform,
and Windows 10 Mobile is now in maintenance mode. No new
features and devices are in the works. However, the existing
flagship phones such as HP Elite x3 and Alcatel IDOL 4s will
continue to receive support until late-2019.
