It's almost like this phone doesn't want to come out. The Microsoft Store in the UK has delayed the launch date of the Alcatel IDOL 4 Pro for a second time, with its product page now saying it'll be releasing on August 10th instead of August 7th.

Microsoft originally expected the IDOL 4 Pro to launch on July 26th when it opened pre-orders, but on July 25th it delayed that release date by two whole weeks to August 7th instead. Now today, checking the product page says the device will now be launching on August 10th instead.

That's another delay of three days, which isn't as severe as the first delay, but is still an annoyance for the few who have pre-ordered this device. Microsoft has been giving out compensation in the form of Microsoft Account money for delaying the product from July 26th to August 7th, I wonder if they'll do the same for delaying it for a second time.
