Where did all the Windows Phones go on T-Mobile’s website?
Usually things like this are not cause for concern, we have seen devices come and go off of carrier web-sites in the past.

However to see an entire line of devices disappear from its offerings does raise an eyebrow or two. As of this writing, T-Mobile’s website is devoid of any Windows Phone devices.

This may be an adjustment to inventory codes, or perhaps it is related to the pending release of new Windows Phone devices that are expected to be announced by Nokia on May 14th. What Nokia has in store for us in London next week is up for speculation. We are fairly certain that Nokia will unveil the Lumia 928 which is bound for Verizon.

There have been rumors about a device codenamed “Catwalk” which may be coming to T-Mobile. It may be a relative to the Lumia 928, but we have not seen very many leaks or images about such a device. It also seems odd that T-Mobile would pull the curtain down on Windows Phone unless something special is in store with the highly affordable Lumia 521 which sold out in minutes at Wal-Mart.

We called around to a couple T-Mobile stores in Northern California, and several were totally out of stock of the Nokia Lumia 810 and Windows Phone 8X by HTC. When we called T-Mobile’s phone sales team, they had no explanation about the abrupt absence of Windows Phone devices in their system.

We are fairly confident that this is not an indication that T-Mobile USA is closing the door on Windows Phone. As for what T-Mobile has up its sleeve, we will have to wait and see.

Or maybe they're having problems with Microsoft about their Uncarrier and device pricing.

I just found this on their Facebook page:

"Spencer Micklitsch posted toT-Mobile
4 hours ago

'Where did the windows phones go? Hard to upgrade to one when you stopped selling them.'

T-Mobile:

'Hey Spencer! The Nokia Lumia 810 and Windows Phone 8X by HTC have been popular devices for T-Mobile. Customers have enjoyed the simple and easy-to-use interface provided by Windows Phone 8 and T-Mobile will continue to support this platform with new devices like the Nokia Lumia 521. However, at this time the Lumia 810 and Windows Phone 8X will no longer be sold by T-Mobile online atwww.T-Mobile.com. The device will continue to be sold by select T-Mobile retail stores and by T-Mobile partners until inventory runs out.'"

The rumor I keep hearing is that the 810 and 8X were pulled mostly due to their lack of LTE chipsets. I am not overly concerned. T-Mo has been a happy supporter of WP. These devices fit their desire for inexpensive devices.

No confirmation, no inside scoop. Just what the smoke signals and war drums are saying on the blogs.

The answer, for once, is clearly provided in the article itself. There is no need for a debate about it.

I wonder what grudge Troll has against MS, Nokia, and WP. This guy just can't wait to sink his teeth into them. Unless he's paid by google to do this s**t like Samsung did to HTC. That's fiendish and outright evil! We'll, I guess it comes with the creator of the OS.
