Sprint mysteriously cleared its online store of all Windows Phone devices this week, but it doesn’t look like the carrier is ready to ditch Microsoft’s mobile OS competely. The company told PhoneScoop that it plans to start selling new Windows Phone devices in the “near future,” though it wouldn’t offer any specifics beyond that.
It’s worth noting that Sprint has never really been a go-to source for Windows Phones. The only options ever offered by the carrier were the HTC 8XT and Samsung’s ATIV S Neo, which are both pretty outdated by now. You may be able to track down those phones at some retail stores, but you’re probably better off waiting for whatever is coming to Sprint next.
We wouldn’t be too shocked to see HTC’s One (M8) for Windows make its way to Sprint, especially since the device is already available from Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile. We might also see a newer Lumia device become available from the carrier, maybe even the mysterious metal handset that leaked last week. Either way, it shouldn’t be too long before something makes it way to Sprint’s website.
