@Bass: Seriously, we get it, microsoft kicked sand in your face when you were at the beach with your sweetie.

Back to the topic:

Sprint's store has the same issue; I was actively discouraged from buying the WP7.  The don't carry or sell the HTC Arrive (WP7) any more and only keep them around for hardware replacement.  Their techs claim WP8s will come 'soon'.

I have to wonder if MSFT, Nokia, Samsung, or HTC salescritters notice this at all.  Someone's paycheck has to depend on these items being sold.
