    Cityman or 950 XL =$499
    Talkman or 950 = $429

    Should offer them at those prices, unlocked from Microsoftstore.com.
    They should be able to sell 'dem apples then...
    One would argue that the OP 2 is cheaper but it has no Qi charging, cameras aren't comparable, no NFC, and no qHD. So the difference in price is justified by MSFT, plus no stupid invite to buy the phone...

    I'm thinking that pricing is absolutely key on these devices, too. I'd go so far as to say $399 for the XL and it would sell quite well, and most people wouldn't make a huge deal about aesthetics.

    $399 is too low. I'd go $399 for the smaller one (950) with $499 for the bigger screen (XL) and a bundle of some free service.

    They need to also upgrade the 830. Keep the same specs (16GB on board storage +2GB RAM) - upgrade the chip to an 808 or 805, put the 930's camera on it and sell that for $300...with all the US bands.

    And market the **** out of it.

    As long as the price is reasonable and in this ball park area I think it'll be a success. However we all know that MS's biggest weakness has been getting carriers to actually sell their devices. If they can see this unlocked through the MS store with a gigantic marketing push globally we should be all set.

    I heard a radio ad the other day talking about Windows Phones and the Surface 3 on AT&T. I was quite surprised! A good 60 seconds or more!

    Not sure what to make of the L950/XL. I do agree they look slightly cheap and plastic. Hard to go by a render on how they generally look and feel. Nor the weight.

    I've never been a fan of the camera bulge either.

    I have to agree that I was hoping for something a bit more slick looking. Maybe their Intel phones will be the 'premium phone' people want. More waiting....
    I'll wait till I see the phone in reviews to make my call. :p

    I took my Lumia 635 off the Marketplace and installed Win10TP on it. Going to keep it as a spare / test device to help answer questions on the forums.

    I like Win10 on the 635 so far. And in an ironic twist, I like WP8.1 on the Lumia 640😃

    I think I'll go with Esmeralda Juanita Larousse. Her mom is Spanish, her dad is French and her grandfather is Puerto Rican.

    Starting to think how a lot of websites could use a redesign. It's 2015, and some are still using the same layout as a few years back.
    Windows Central forums being one of them, tbh.
