Microsoft giving away a free Display Dock to U.S. and Canadian Lumia 950 XL buyers

In some countries, Microsoft is giving away a Display Dock with the purchase of the Microsoft Lumia 950 and the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL. Valued at $99 USD, the accessory is used to help hook up either phone with a monitor and keyboard, turning it into a PC. On Friday, Microsoft finally let inquiring U.S. and Canadian consumers  know that they will receive a free Continuum Display Dock with the purchase of the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL.

But shortly after releasing details of the deal in both countries, Microsoft removed references to the Lumia 950. That means that only buyers of the larger-screened (and larger priced) Lumia 950 XL will receive the dock for free. And in the U.S., the Lumia 950 XL will not be available from any carrier. The only place to get the phone will be the Microsoft Store.

To qualify for the free dock, you must purchase the Lumia 950 XL and register it with Microsoft between November 25th and January 31st, 2016
. You will receive a promotional code from Microsoft that you can use on the Lumia Offers app on the Microsoft Store, to pick up your free Display Dock. That must be done before February 29th, 2016. Once supplies run out, you are out of luck.

The Microsoft Store lists the Lumia 950 XL as "coming soon," with a price of $649. You can pre-register for the device by clicking on the sourcelink. Give Microsoft the info they request, and you will be notified when pre-orders for the phablet are being accepted.
