Microsoft Store selling Acer's Liquid Jade Primo with Continuum dock and more for just $549
The space for Windows 10 Mobile flagships is quite peculiar. Microsoft's Lumia 950 and 950 XL were both met with a bit of disappointment after all the hype that was surrounding them, and devices like the HP Elite X3 try to be the one computing device you'll ever need - at a price point that's just too much to swallow.

Acer's Liquid Jade Primo was yet another Windows 10 Mobile flagship to hit the scene, and it was first announced back at CES earlier this year. The device featured some pretty decent specifications with a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display and 21 MP rear camera, but its price tag of $649 unlocked held it back from any potential greatness it could have delivered.

If you've been looking to get your hands on a flagship Windows 10 Mobile handset, but have been waiting for a sweet deal to pop up before you pull the trigger, now just might be the time for you to finally take that leap. Starting today, the Microsoft Store is now selling the Acer Liquid Jade Primo Bundle for $100 off in the United States. The bundle includes not only the Acer Liquid Jade Primo, but also Acer's own Continuum dock, mouse, and keyboard.

The Continuum dock allows you to connect the Liquid Jade Primo to an external display to use it as a full-fledged Windows PC, and the phone's Snapdragon 808 CPU and 3GB of RAM should prove to be plenty of power for general productivity tasks. The phone also comes equipped with 32GB of internal storage, but that can easily be expanded through the use of a microSD card.

The Acer Liquid Jade Primo Bundle is currently selling for just $549 from the Microsoft Store, and it is only available in the US. There's no word as to how long this deal will actually last, so if it sounds like something you're interested in, you might want to act fast!

This is bound to fail from the first time it was announced and priced.

Again... people raggin' on this do not understand what MS is aiming to do with Windows 10 mobile. It is no longer a consumer product. The current goal is to get Windows 10 PC's, laptops, tablets, and phones into the hands of business and grow it into an enterprise ready OS that there is no hiccups or lost function across the board. If they can get a seamless operation from phones to PC's, then they will have an advantage that their competitors will not have. Acer (like HP, still a PC/tablet/laptop focused company) this is a nice investment which will pay dividends if it works. As far as us casual users are concerned, MS no longer cares and their suite of software across Android and iOS works just fine for them to continue a presence in the consumer world.

I don't mind using if it's sponsor by my company. No I will not use my own money for this. I hate the way MS treat their paying customers, like dirt!!

Oh, I am so fine with that. I am a big user of MS services, and they kicked me to the curb several times in mobile decisions. I might pick up a W10 device as they drop as an experimental device, but it will be a long time before I trust them to be my daily mobile driver again, regardless how much I like the OS

separate not to bad, 50-100 for the dock, 50 for the keyboard combo, and that leaves the phone near 400-450 for a decent phone. Personally I want more of these deals to hit places like Walmart. I want them to be sold as school bundles. Sell a lapdock, key/mouse combo, phone, 500.
