All unlocked Lumias have been removed from the US Microsoft Store

It's no secret that Microsoft is getting out of the phone hardware business; in fact, during its last earnings call, the company said that it should be completely done selling its handsets by the end of June, after reporting just $5 million in phone revenue last quarter.

Today, it took another step toward that goal, as three of the four Lumia listings on the US Microsoft Store website have been removed. These include the unlocked Lumia 950, the AT&T variant of the 950, and the 950 XL, leaving only Verizon's Lumia 735. Unfortunately, while the one device remains listed, it's still out of stock.

Of course, if you still want a Windows phone, you do have options. HP's Elite x3 and Alcatel's IDOL 4S are the current flagships, and if you're looking for something lower-end, there's the Acer Liquid M330. There's also Acer's Liquid Jade Primo bundle, which includes a dock, keyboard, and mouse, but the phone hasn't been supported in so long that it never received the Anniversary Update.

There are also two carriers left that sell Windows phones. Cricket Wireless is currently offering a refurbished Lumia 640 for $0.99 with activation, and Verizon still has the Lumia 735 in stock.
