Microsoft has deleted its Lumia 950 XL Windows 10 Mobile flagship from its UK store

Last week, after three months out of stock, Microsoft removed its Lumia 950 - the smaller of its two Windows 10 Mobile flagships - from its UK Store. Now, two months after the larger Lumia 950 XL went out of stock, it too has vanished from the store.

The last time the 950 XL was available to purchase from the Microsoft Store there was towards the end of November, shortly after its price was cut from £339 to £289, including a free Display Dock. Now, though, its listing has been completely deleted from the Store, and the URL now redirects to the UK Store homepage.

Various other retailers are continuing to offer the device, although inventory is clearly running low as it reaches the end of its retail life. Carphone Warehouse - the UK's largest independent handset retailer - is no longer selling the Lumia 950 XL, although the 950 is still available for £399.99 SIM-free.

Just four Windows phones are now listed on the Microsoft Store in the UK.

The only two Lumias listed - the Lumia 650, and the two-year-old Lumia 640 XL - are both out of stock. The Acer Liquid Jade Primo, priced at £209.99, is also out of stock - although, given that that device won't be eligible for upgrade to the latest Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update (which was released almost six months ago), it's probably best avoided anyway.

That means that only one Windows phone is available to purchase from Microsoft's UK Store: the flagship-class HP Elite x3, which is priced at £706.80, including the Desk Dock accessory.

Meanwhile, over in the United States, the Microsoft Store seems to be dealing with severe stock management issues, as its handsets keep going out of stock, and then suddenly being replenished, every few days.
