Sprint, the third largest wireless carrier in the US, is no longer selling any Windows Phone devices on its website. So far, the company has not yet commented on this decision.
A quick check of the Sprint website shows that not only does it not show any Windows Phone units on sale but that the selection of smartphone operating systems on its menu is only showing iOS, Android and BlackBerry models. We have contacted Sprint's PR reps to see if they have any comments on this move but so far they have not responded to our inquiries. If and when they do, we will update this post.
While Sprint itself may not be selling any Windows Phone models, other retail outlets are offering phones from the carrier, at least for now. The Microsoft Store website is still selling the Sprint models of the Samsung ATIV S Neo and the HTC 8XT. Amazon is also selling the ATIV S Neo.
However, this action by Sprint is also not unexpected. The carrier has never been the biggest supporter of Windows Phones, at least compared to its competition at AT&T and T-Mobile. Even Verizon Wireless has shown more support for Microsoft's OS this year than Sprint has.
