    Honestly pre-orders mean nada, B&H says expected ship date of Dec. 15th.. That's just a shot in the dark, they don't know anymore then we do when it will be released.. just they're guesstimate, I would bet we'll have them on or within the next 2 weeks..

    I was told by a Microsoft sales manager (not a store rep) who was showing the phones off at an event that they'll be released by the end of the month. I asked him to be more specific and he said "before thanksgiving".

    we'll find out soon enough if he knew what he's talking about...


    B&H, which in the past sold unlocked imported Lumias, is probably going off the release dates for the European models they plan on selling.

    Went in to Carphone Warehouse today, I felt sorry for him. I asked the guy about release date etc, first thing he did was turn on his tablet (they have one each). He then said early December, based on what the screen said. I asked if that was based in something in particular, he shows me the screen, he was on the Tech Radar website. I asked about pre-order, he tapped again and told me about Amazon. He also said to check the Carphone Warehouse website. There was one positive, he said that he had seen both 950 devices recently at a convention. He said they looked great.

    Decided while I was waiting for the 950XL I just ordered a Nokia DT910 Wireless Charging Stand, brand new in sealed box for $19 on ebay w/free shipping, figured what the heck. Might pick up a Wireless Charging pad for work next lol..

    Seen the comparison with the G4, via Neowin, 950 wins it for me.

    I went to a Microsoft Ignite event on Thursday and they said November 27th for both the 950 and XL. But I missed the keynote and was told that by an attendee, so maybe he misheard. But it does sound like towards the end of November is solid.

    On another note, a Microsoft rep told me Verizon support won't be coming until Spring 2016 at the earliest. Microsoft is rebuilding it's phone business and focusing on GSM first given its much wider global support. But Microsoft knows the feedback regarding the lack of a Verizon phone and are working on it. I'm sure the politics is strong within both Microsoft and Verizon. The rep also said Microsoft will be building just a few models going forward because the number of models being released by Nokia wasn't sustainable given the difficulty with testing and such.

    Regarding the GSM phones, he said the 950XL will be available through the Microsoft Store, the 950 directly from AT&T, and that they will also work on T-Mobile.

    Releasing the phones on Black Friday seems like a pretty silly thing to do consideirng many other phones that compete with the new Lumias will be having big sales on that day.

    Wow I really feel sorry for people who pre ordered the PRIV. Looks like digital river won't be shipping these until a few days. So glad we have physical stores to walk in to get the 950XL.

    Would be nice but can't honestly see them have a sale on a phone on it's first day release.. But it sure would be nice lol.. I think releasing on Black Friday would be a BIG mistake, sticking with the 20th :)

    If they DO have a sale, I'd hope they would honor the price afterward for those who have preordered. I'm going to be out of town for Thanksgiving. :(

    Yes, Waiting and Waiting in Dubai - UAE.

    I have already ordered the 950XL Mozo Cover in Brown Leather and White. They look so elegant and the right word would be 'different'. It's nice to feel different.

    Most probably I'll be holding on to those covers for quiet a while until I actually get the phone.. :-(

    Oh, and I have 3 wireless chargers (2 from my 920 and a new Nokia stand up one that was on sale and I could not resist),.
    What was the Nokia stand up charger you got?

    Spent the whole weekend at a party. Got home at midnight Sunday night and passed out immediately. Woke up this morning and ran to my PC to check and see if pre-orders were announced during my 2-day absence from the internet.

    Nope.

    I'm sure the devices are being loaded with 10586 right now and should be sitting in MS stores in the US next week.
