Seems as though the folks over at Alcatel haven’t gotten the memo about the future of Windows phones yet. While Microsoft pulls the plug on its support for Window 8.1 handsets, and arguably continues to put nails in the coffin of Windows 10 Mobile’s development, mid-range phone maker Alcatel is set to take pre-orders for its latest Windows 10 Mobile flagship in the UK.

The Alcatel IDOL 4 Pro is now available for pre-order in Germany and across Europe for the starting price of £419.99 or roughly $550. Perhaps, in an effort to recoup some of the R&D cost that went into the phone, Alcatel is selling the IDOL 4 at a bit of a price increase when compared to its US offering, also, the phone didn’t sell well or for very long on T-Mobile.

For remaining Windows phone fans, the Microsoft Store UK has the pre order listing and Alcatel IDOL 4 Pro spec sheet, or check out our coverage of the phone here at
