Windows Phone is a little hidden on the Microsoft store. Here's the screen when you look for phones -

It's only after you click 'Show all' and scroll down that you can find the Alcatel 4s and the HP Elite X3 (for $799!!).

This pitch -

The Alcatel IDOL 4S is a high-powered, multi-purpose phone designed for the boardroom and beyond. It delivers indispensable business features like Windows 10 and Microsoft Continuum, which give it PC-like power. And it’s the first Windows phone to come with an out-of-the-box virtual reality experience, perfect for when the workday ends and the fun begins.

I started thinking about this when I saw this post about Windows Insider updates coming to an end for Windows Phone.

I don't know, man. It just doesn't seem ethical for Microsoft to continue selling Windows Phone. There are real-life human beings who paid real money for these phones. Shouldn't Microsoft halt the madness? And what about Microsoft's image? It really paints a bad image of Microsoft for being willing to screw over its customers like this. I don't get it.
