    Any word on how much the dock cost?

    Dock is supposed to be $99 according to

    Microsoft Display Dock For Lumia 950, 950 XL Windows 10 Mobile Flagships To Cost $99 | HotHardware

    I wish though that the online MS store offered pre-orders for the 950 as well as the 950xl. I'd much rather buy it from them than AT&T and order now.

    There are rumours that there will be bundles that include the dock with the phone, too.

    Wow, Microsoft is really making it hard to get the XL. What is their deal. Just have it at all carriers and big box stores, my god.
    Might want to tweet this to Tuula Rytila @trytila.

    When you say both are you including the 950? If so, I think I'm going to preorder it. Was at the Microsoft store just today and saw the 950 XL, but not the 950. Not having to pay to pre-order is nice.

    Wish they would have gone the Moto X Pure route. They have it available in Best Buy on display and for purchase unlocked. I don't get what MS is trying to accomplish by limiting the ways you can get it.
    Yes I placed two orders last night at the Microsoft store. One for 950XL and one for 950. Good luck.

    Just placed black xl in ms store. They told me it was actually available for pre-order online for minutes after the launch announcement but sold out immediately. I checked didn't see it.
    yeah... I don't think they ever offered it online as I was on there through most of the keynote and never saw anything but the email notification form (but I suppose I could have missed it). guess I'll have to go and pre-order myself at the local store.

    I stopped by the Microsoft Store after leaving work today and placed my 950 XL preorder.

    I'm still holding out hope that they will do this - use AT&T as the only carrier that sells it in cellphone stores, but sell it unlocked and without carrier affiliation in other stores. I don't think it will happen, but a few (Motorola, Sony, BLU) already do at Best Buy. However, those are less expensive phones. Not sure if a $650 phone would be viable for that purpose yet (maybe MS could work out some interest free option like the carriers have).

    Microsoft will almost certainly sell these at Best Buy since they have a retail agreement with them. Patience....

    Well so much for trying to sneak the Lumia 950 by on pre-order!

    Hello Mr. Worldspy99,

    Our records indicated that you requested to pre-order the Microsoft Lumia 950. Unfortunatly, at this time, we are unable to fulfill your request. The Lumia 950 is not currently available in our region. However, you still have the option of the Microsoft Lumia 950XL which will be available soon. Let me know if you would like me to change the request order for your 950 to the 950XL. Pre-orders are still free, and will guarantee you a copy when it’s released. Let me know what you decide.

    Best,

    Because the closest store to me is over 3 hours away...
    Feeling spoiled with having two MSFT stores within 15 min of me and a 3rd on up in SF. I preordered a Black XL.

    The closest MS store for me must be a plane trip away. It's not so common here in Slovenia, Europe... But i'd buy it at MS store if i could, or i'll just wait for my carrier to get it, usually a month later or so...

    When are they expected to arrive? Do you pick it up in store or are they shipped to you?

    I was told this afternoon "before the end of the year." which gave me a bit of a pause. but he then said they are hoping for sometime in November.

    if you pre-order, they basically notify you when they arrive in the store and they'll hold one for you for up to 7 days to pick up.

    as I said in another thread, the stores are being told the 950/XL hardware is ready, it's Window Mobile 10.0 to be finished they are waiting on.

    That is too funny. I was going to ask if you pre-ordered an ATT branded 950. I am pretty much over carrier branded and/or locked phones, but I may make an exception for this one. I can't using an XL, but I guess I'll go by the MS store tomorrow and see how it looks.

    I am assuming they had a demo model?

    I wonder if you can preorder with the devil, er, ATT.

    It would be nice if you could preorder a 950 XL with one of those sweet metal and leather backs. I want to preorder, but not sure where/if there is one with a dock included deal somewhere.

    They did not have the 950, only the 950XL was on display in white. I posted pics in the hands on experience thread.

    Why preorder this stuff? It's not like there's going to be a shortage or a line out the door you have to camp out overnight in front of the MS store. I mean, I'm planning on buying a phone too so I'm a fan and all..just wondering what all the hub-bub is that would incline folks to pre-order.

    With games..pre-orders are incentivized by bundling with in-game goodies or toys or whatever. There isn't any bundle deal that I'm aware of...so where's the motivation beyond just simple super-fan status?

    I did it simply to let Microsoft know "yes, I am interested" and let them gauge interest. I'm not sure I'll buy it, but leaning towards it, so might as well pre-order for free.

    If it were a real pre-order they would just bill your CC once in stock and ship it to you. That I would do in a heart beat so I can just buy and forget about it until then.

    I checked out the XL in my local store but until the OS is finished its no sale for me. Just watching the demos from the MS event where the photos app backed by a SD810 and 3GB of RAM was so jerky when it was being zoomed in tells me this OS is far from ready. Cant believe a WP7 device with a single core CPU and 512MB RAM looks smoother doing the same task, tells me there are serious issues that need to be fixed with this OS.

    Just preordered the dual SIM black. Excited to be coming back to WP as long as the support for apps come with Project Astoria. That's really important for me with several apps.
