    Loved that commercial. Probably one of the last real ads for a windows phone. There were a couple lower key ads later, but that was the last time Microsoft really put advertising $$ into the platform. Gee I wonder why no one ever took notice, probably were too busy being bombarded with iPhone and Samsung ads.

    I think this is pretty positive considering that a lot of phones (Essential Phone and Pixel aside) are not protected from Meltdown and Spectre but Microsoft released an update to protect Windows 10 Mobile phones already. Talk about a twist!

    Currently downloading it (it's taking its time).

    Nope! I have a 650 but I'm debating if I should still own one.

    One meaning any Windows Phone that is.

    Might as well keep it unless you are really desperate for $50 or so. Seems that is all they are really worth.

    Yep, this is true. I figured that I wouldn't be able to get much of anything from it but at this point, not opposed to possibly giving it away LOL. Looking at it on my desk makes me sad that the chances of me using it are low.

    Thanks to UWP app for Candy Crush, now we are able to have more levels on Windows 10 mobile as compared to Android & IOS. Got the UWP update some days back on Candy Crush and many new levels came up there

    WTH? This seems real, did they find a crate with leftovers tucked away in a warehouse or something?!

    If they did, they should not sell them at that price tag. Circuitry ages in different ways even while sitting for 2 yrs depending on temperature and other elements...Be nice if they sell the Warranty with them at that price.

    Unlikely. Uncharged phone batteries die after about a year or so of sitting there doing nothing. Lithium needs charge and discharge. If they were lying around, they would have had to go to the trouble of replacing all the batteries.

    Certainly intruiging that.........Looks like they actually produced another run of all their current models. But with no updates ATM, why?

    Are they planning something they haven't mentioned? Weird.

    I can’t see them actually producing more at this point. Why?

    And how? They sold off all the manufacturing capacity they acquired in the Nokia buy out. I believe it was to HMD Global Oy which is the Nokia based entity that makes the new Nokia phones... Maybe a limited run partnership?

    Doubtful, but stranger things have happened...

    I can't make any sense of it in general. They supposedly cleared stock last year. They surely couldn't have such a bad inventory system they lost some. And they wouldn't take back stock resellers have already paid for.

    Plus the price- it's not clearance pricing, its "we know these are going to sell nicely" pricing. Maybe they held some back just to juice the fans?

    And they'd have had to replace or buy all the batteries (costing them money). It's a weird move, however it came about. Especially with no announcement.

    They could have said officially "windows mobile is back for one last time", or made some kind of statement. Instead, just stealthly put them back in the store.

    MSFT is so weird...

    Just checked the microsoft store. Looks like either all the stock sold, or it was a mistake, none are available.

    Interesting. They all showed available this morning. I don't know why but the seeing the 950 for sale on the Microsoft site made me want one all over again.

    lol, that probably makes more sense than anything. That it was the web store managers error, and they never should have been up there.

    Not sure if this could be good news or not but in the film 'The Foreigner', which is the latest Jackie Chan film, Pierce Brosnan's character has a Windows phone. Windows phone is also in Netflix's The Punisher as well.
    I noticed that as well!
