    I know it's not out in Canada... yet. But rumors of the release date in Canada seem to be all over the map. My friends over at the Eaton Centre (Toronto) location seem to be confused themselves. One minute it's Nov 20th... The next it's sometime the following week.

    I pre-ordered mine back in October in store and followed up yesterday to be safe that just in case they should actually show up by some miracle tomorrow that my XL is set aside.

    So should anyone be lucky enough to snag one tomorrow be sure to share here where you got yours! Good luck to all of you!

    I pre-ordered it so I don't know even if it comes out tomorrow I would be able to pick it up from store instead of wait for ship. From what I know the earliest ship date for 950XL is Nov 26th for MS Canada, I unfortunately missed that first batch by a few hours so mine says "Ship by December 11". Kinda bummed but it's just another week.

    I did talk to a rep online about it, and this is all I got:

    "I just want to inform you, we are currently waiting for the availability of the product. For us to able to ship the product.
    And we apologize for the inconvenience. However, once it is already available, you will be receiving an email confirmation with the Shipment Details."

    So yeah, pretty much we just have to wait it out

    I'll be passing through the store on my way home around 5:30pm EST. I have a gut feeling it won't be there though.

    Do the stores at least have demo units in stock? I was thinking about stopping at Yorkdale or Square One on my way home to check them out. I still haven't decided on whether I want to go 950 or XL, and would like to at least handle both before deciding.

    They used to have the 950XL but removed them from stores. To be honest the demos were lack luster anyway and lacked the build quality that you should expect from the actual retail units. In my store the Microsoft logo was peeling off the back of the device and it just seemed.. "cheap" looking. But the sales people defending but saying don't worry it's just the demo unit. In terms of being able to test the hardware and software of the non-XL you can definitely do that to get a good feel for it. That to me was more impressive.

    Yeah, software-wise they'd be identical, but It's really the form factor I'm more interested in. I was all set to go with the XL, but then I was using my AtivS this morning, and realized that with the XL, I probably couldn't use it one handed and hit the back button with my thumb. Also, not sure if the extra little bit of screen real estate is worth $100.

    So the US confirmed sales of the 950's in their MS store on Nov 26th (US Thanksgiving). Curious if that will hold the same as for us. Obviously, we're well past Thanksgiving here so not sure if that changes anything for us.

    Of course, the next problem is that there's only partial support for the bands on Bell, so I'm not sure how it'll work out. Might not be worth getting right away after all...

    Really? I thought Bell and Rogers used the same bands.

    Nope-found this site (WillMyPhoneWork.net - Check if your phone works on a network) that just aggregates network information. Looks like it has 2 of the 3g bands, and 2 of the LTE ones, so the only real question is what coverage is going to be like outside of major centres. It doesn't support CDMA, so if there are areas where that's all there is, then that means a dead zone.

    I'm not sure, I would call the store and see if they can hold one in store for you and cancel your other pre-order.

    Thanks. Yeah I just chatted with someone online and he said I would have to cancel the order if I want to pick up from store instead. I'll see if they ship before Nov 26 then.

    do we know if we're getting the dual sim XL or not? Safe to say yes if the US 950 has dual sim?

    Lol I think I'm just going to visit the Yorkdale store first thing in the morning of 26th and hope they'll have them in stock. The lady that I called today said 26th is general release for Canada, US, and Puerto rico but the stock will mostly be for ones that pre-ordered in store. Hopefully they'll have extras.
