HTC Surround disappears from AT&T site

HTC Surround, we hardly knew ye. One of the first Windows Phone 7 handsets to hit the market just a year ago, the Surround appears to have been one of the first to leave the market — it vanished from AT&T's site this week, with only a "no longer available" mention left in its place. (Though, oddly, it's still featured on the AT&T WP7 landing page.) Telus, a Canadian carrier, also appears to be phasing out the Surround; it's marked "Discontinued" from a Telus retailer, but it still appears to be available on the carrier's site. Though fans of its kickstand and landscape speaker will be sorry to see it go, the move makes sense — with more powerful Mango-ready phones rolling out, like HTC's own Titan, and a new batch expected from Nokia next week, there's no room left for the now-ancient first generation of Windows Phones.

We've reached out to AT&T for comment — we'll update when we hear back.
