Are you looking to purchase a Windows Phone device on the third largest mobile carrier in the country? Well you won’t be able to buy one from the comfort of your couch. Sprint has halted all online sales of Windows Phone devices which means you will have to venture out to the local brick-and-mortar establishment if you’re so bent on picking up a Windows Phone device from Sprint.
Even though it has halted online sales, Sprint says that it is still committed to the platform. So Sprint won’t be discontinuing sales of Windows Phone devices through its retail locations, despite the fact that it will no longer sell these devices online.
I should point out here that Sprint didn’t really have a stellar Windows Phone lineup. Recent additions to its WP lineup included HTC 8XT and the Samsung ATIV S Neo, both of which cannot be classified as a powerhouse.
Sprint does say that new Windows Phone devices will be added to the lineup at some point in the future. In a statement the carrier says that it expects to bring “new Windows Phone devices to our customers in the near future,” while reiterating its commitment to “offering a variety of operating systems” to its customers.
It is unclear right now which new WP devices will be headed to Sprint and if the carrier is ever going to start selling them online again.
