We reported recently on shortages of the Lumia 950 XL in UK for warranty purposes. We have also heard that Microsoft has stopped production of its Lumia flagships a month ago. Now German site WPArea.de reports that the Lumia 950 has gone out of stock at the online Microsoft Store in Germany, with Microsoft support unable to tell them when the device will once again be available.
In Austria the handset is seemingly available, with a delivery date of 27th November, suggesting stock may be expected from other regions.
It is expected that this situation will soon spread around the world, with rumours that Microsoft expect to stop selling Lumia handsets by the end of the year. The handset is still available at low prices at other retailers in Germany, so if you want one now may be the best time to snap one up.
Windows Mobile handsets are still expected to be available from other OEMs such as HP and Acer, but these devices are expected to be directed at enterprise customers who are prepared to pay somewhat more, and will likely not have consumer features such as high-end cameras.
