Last night at CES, we managed to chat up some people with Microsoft, specifically about the Verizon incident and Lumia phones. Starting yesterday, Verizon apparently pulled listings for their Lumia phones on the Verizon Wireless site. Granted, those phones – the Lumia 822 and Lumia 928 – are both aging Windows Phones to begin with, still, it did not look good for Microsoft.
However, Verizon is now saying that the reason those phones are not listed online is due to them being out of stock. Certainly the production of those devices is probably at an all-time low, and stock would be a little bit more difficult to procure versus a newer Lumia 830. The phones though are reportedly still available in physical stores, although local stock and availability will likely vary.
