Will this prove to be the case?

We should know before Christmas.

I think that was Verizon dropping Microsoft.

It goes in-line with my post, Re: when will verizon wireless get new Windows phones?

I can't find the quote from Nadella that he said something like the markets that were doing poorly for Windows Phones he would pull out. Would you consider VZW a market or the USA a market?  Market is a broad term.

We'll know sure enough by the end of the year.  As it stands AT&T is said to only be selling the Lumia 950 (Talkman) and no news on who will carry the Lumia 950 XL.

VZW did get the Icon which was a 930 equivalent where no other carrier in the US carried.  Though VZW did sit on it for a few months before sell then disconnected a few month later....

I don't know how the Lumia 735 is selling; similar pattern though, sit on it for a few months and then sell it.

Now the question is Microsoft not going to release devices to VZW but OEMs will or is the whole platform dead on VZW?

I think even more correct is that Microsoft is dropping phones.

Well, I think if the next round of Win 10 phones fizzles then, yes, most likely.

It's a numbers game, plain and simple. If only a relative handful of customers want WP it's just not worth the commitment Verizon has to make to get a CDMA-version of a phone made, not to mention the cost to support such a platform.

The Lumia 735 is on the list for first round updates to Windows 10 Mobile, which is a good sign. Since they're already supporting WP it's just a matter of convincing Microsoft to make a CDMA 950/950XL. Like primortal said, Lumia 735 sales will be telling. The 735 is by no means a flagship device, but it's priced pretty aggressively. Fingers crossed! I'd love a good reason to ditch my iPhone 6.

I Agree.  ATT seems to be headed the same way.  It seems there is still a pocket of dedicate windows and blackberry fans who are doomed to be disappointed by major U.S. Carriers.

Windows 8 and 8.1 drove away many folks considering a windows phone, myself included. I avoided 8 and 8.1 like the plague!!

Ttrue.   My father bought a laptop off the floor to avoid windows 8.  My son just updated his new computer to 10 and loves it.   Takes all kinds.
