Microsoft has finally sold every Windows 10 Mobile device

Microsoft has finally sold every Windows 10 Mobile device
Alas, Microsoft has finally sold all of its Windows 10 Mobile devices. Microsoft released its last self-designed Lumia phone some time ago. Over the last year or so, they had only third party devices in their Microsoft Store. Mostly this was limited to the Alcatel Idol 4S and the HP Elite x3. the last few months have seen both of these phones go on sale including the HP dock bundle. In the last several days, some lucky (or unlucky?) customers purchased the last of the company's hardware stock and they are now sold out. Of course you can still purchase these phones on auction sites, Amazon and other retailers. Coincidentally, Wileyfox is once again selling its modest-priced Pro device just as the Microsoft Store sold out. Most likely the next time you see a mobile device carrying Windows on Microsoft's store page will be Andromeda

For those who love Microsoft...

but just can not justify buying a phone running a dead OS, Microsoft's site still sells phones. They are just Samsung devices and they run Android. However, don't knock it till you try it. These devices come preloaded with a suite of Microsoft software and the company has spent a great deal of time optimizing these Android apps. You can easily get by on Android in the Microsoft ecosystem, at least until Andromeda.

RIP Windows 10 Mobile (2015 - 2018). Okay, quit trolling, GreenMan. That ought to be the last nail in the coffin but Microsoft will continue sending security updates for at least two more years. In fact, my Lumia 430 (Release Date: March 2015) received a security patch for Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities about two months ago! And core Microsoft Apps (Maps, OneNote, Office Suite, OneDrive, Skype etc) are getting at least two updates per month! Nice, eh? G'Day!

I still power on my idol 4s several times a month and it is true, frequent updates rolling out. I think more updates with fixes for apps and the OS then when the OS was alive lol

Now that there's no more Insider Builds they have time to issue bug fixes faster. They were so worked up on fixing the developmental arm that they treated the Production Build like a red-headed step-child.

I'd buy an idol 4s at $99. As a spare and to see the last of Windows 10m.
