    New Zealand btw. Found 3 of 5 major carriers had lumias. Went into a tech store, looked if they had windows 10 mobile phones. They had two lumias. 950 seemed to be the go to.

    I was expecting for all this talk of "windows mobile is dead" blah it would be like finding a blackberry passport or something. But it's extremely easy to buy a win 10 mobile where I am, and under a variety of carriers/contracts.

    I'll still probably buy mine online, because its cheaper. But nothing at all like the impression one often gets on here.

    There is still a lot of old stock available. The 950 didn't sell well, and today it sells only to enthusiasts. You should get a good price.

    It wasn't cheap either 700 new Zealand dollars unlocked (480 USD). Which is literally higher than the price in the windows store unlocked (399 USD).

    I'd be way better off buying any such device overseas, price wise. And that was a basement price tech store.

    We had 15% marketshare in 2013.

    Maybe its mainly business or on the foot of what was still probably booming last year (like australia's 5%+ in 2016)

    This is interesting. Shows windows is still in fact doing well in some parts of the world. Well not as high as its peak, but hardly globally irrelevant either. Highest seems to be Europe. If new Zealand got up to 15%, I've got to wonder what somewhere like Italy got up to!
