The Microsoft Band is dead (maybe)

Microsoft gave it two tries, but the company’s wrist-worn Band fitness tracker is seemingly no more. The Band 2 has been removed completely from Microsoft’s online store, signaling that production has ceased. It’s no longer available from Best Buy either, though Amazon is still selling through its remaining inventory. ZDNet reports that the company has no current plans to release a Band 3. The team responsible for the Band was recently dissolved, throwing doubt on Microsoft’s future plans for the product… More at The Verge.

It’s not surprising, but when I go to this link I can still buy it from Microsoft (screenie below)? Best advice though is to probably not buy one at this time.
