Microsoft Lumia 950

Microsoft has started selling Lumia Windows phones at the company’s online retail store once again. The software giant originally removed its Lumia devices back in June, leaving HP’s Elite x3 and Alcatel’s Idol 4S as the only choices for Windows Phone fans. Windows Latest has now spotted that Microsoft has started selling its Lumia devices again earlier this month.

The Lumia 950 is available for $399, alongside the Lumia 950 XL ($499), Lumia 650 ($199), and Lumia 550 ($139). Microsoft did finally admit that Windows Phone is dead back in October, but the company’s transparency around the death of the mobile operating system has been rather confusing at times. Now that phones are once again being sold in the Microsoft Store, that won’t help with the obvious confusion over the sad and slow death of Windows Phone.

It’s likely that Microsoft still has some stock of these devices that it needs to clear. So, if you’re a fan of Microsoft’s mobile operating system then this might be your last chance to get a Lumia before they’re truly all gone.

Update: 1:15PM ET: Well that didn’t take long. It looks like the devices are now listed as “unavailable,” so they probably weren’t supposed to be sold or stocks disappeared. Either way, Windows Phone is officially dead again.
