Sprint demotes the HTC 8XT to “basic phones” status


Sprint has never been one of Windows Phone’s best supporters, a reality that’s perfectly well reflected in their Windows phone line-up, which is missing all Nokia Lumia handsets.

They did however carry the HTC 8XT, but its sales must not have impressed the company very much, as they have now moved the handset from the smartphone to not just the feature phone but in fact the “basic phone” section.


Of course a Windows Phone is a pretty good choice for a basic phone user upgrading to a smartphone, but with the basic phone section now a very small sliver of the phone market in USA it may not be the best place to display a handset.
