end of life

DC Comics was a popular comic reader for our Windows Phones. I say was because Comixology, the driving force behind the DC Comics app, has pulled the app from the Windows Phone Store and will no longer support those of us who still have the app installed on our phones.

Any purchases already made will still be accessible in your Comixology account but after May 1st, the app will no longer support purchasing new content.

Going, going, going... ah hello, Apollo!

Sprint is slowing phasing out the much loved HTC Arrive, according to Windows Phone Central forum member iknowsingh. Travelling down to the Sprint corporate store on 42nd street in New York, iknowsingh notes that the Arrive was nowhere to be seen. Confirmation came in that it was also not present at three local Sprint authorised retailers with no Arrives in stock.

A representative was able to explain that the HTC Arrive was listed as EOL after the last price change and software update. The device is still listed in the system and on the carrier website, where it can be picked up for just $49.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate.

Seems as though the Windows Phone 7 focus is going a step further with the planned closure of the Windows Mobile web accessible Marketplace on July 15th 2011. Fear not if you still use this platform since you'll still be able to purchase and download apps from the Marketplace on your Windows Mobile Phone.

My Phone is also scheduled to be discontinued on August 7th 2011, which will affect those who rely on this service for backing up your device content. Also starting on the 7th, Microsoft will begin transferring your My Phone content to SkyDrive. You'll be able to access this storage with the LiveID you used to register for the My Phone service.

Be cautious however, videos, music, documents and favorites will not be moved to the SkyDrive and will need to be manually backed up to your local machine. On October 6th 2011, the My Phone website will cease to be available. Microsoft will keep your content (on CD and DVD) from the service for one year, which can be shipped to you upon request by October 5th 2012.

For more information, please see this support article. In the meantime, can we interest you in WP7?

A leaked "end of life" list has surfaced from Verizon Wireless that takes every Windows Phones off Verizon's shelves.

According to the document the HTC Touch Pro 2 has seen it's last days (EOL 6/29/2010) while the HTC Imagio, Ozone and Samsung Omnia 2 have their days seriously numbered (EOL 3/31/2011). All of which essentially wipes Verizon's slate clean of all Windows Phones.

Verizon isn't just axing Windows Phones. Android, Blackberry and Palm devices also make an appearance on the list. However, with Verizon rumored to be giving Windows Phone 7 the cold shoulder, could this be the end of a Verizon Windows Phone?  Or is Verizon warming up to Windows Phone 7 and simply cleaning off the shelves to make room for WP7 inventory?

The Boy Genius has scored a Sprint deathlist, with a couple of Windows Mobile phones slated to be EOL'd – that's end of life – in the coming months.

The Motorola Q9c is on the chopping block, with its execution date set for mid-June. No replacement is noted.

Also on the list is the HTC Touch Diamond, which would go the way of the dinosaurs in July. There's no replacement noted for it, either, though we'd be willing to bet we'll eventually see something off that leaked HTC lineup.

And finally there's the Palm Treo 800w, which will bite the big one in April and be replaced by the Treo Pro. The question remains exactly when.
