Sprint, one of the major carriers in the United States, has stopped selling Windows Phone handsets through its website.
Previously, the company was selling the HTC 8XT and Samsung Ativ S Neo, which are no longer listed at the carrier’s online store.
There’s no official word from Sprint about the issue, but it seems the company didn’t had a lot of success selling Windows Phone handsets. The company didn’t say good bye to the platform, and will add new devices to its product portfolio in the future. Sprint spokesperson said, “We do expect to bring new Windows Phone devices to our customers in the near future, and Sprint is committed to offering a variety of operating systems to our customers.”
Sprint’s Windows Phone offerings were not too exciting anyway as AT&T and T-Mobile have most of the latest Windows Phone devices, both entry-level and high-end. Verizon is also offering some high-end Windows Phone handsets, but even the Big Red has discontinued some of the Lumia devices may be because there’s not enough demand for them.
We’ll update you if Sprint decides to add any Windows Phone handset to its product portfolio.
