Microsoft starts shipping the free Display Dock for U.S. Lumia 950 XL buyers
If you purchased a Microsoft Lumia 950 XL from Microsoft, you might have already received notification that the free Display Dock you've ordered is on the way. The dock allows users to engage the Continuum feature that turns their Microsoft Lumia 950 XL into a computer. Using the Display Dock, users connect a mouse, a physical keyboard, an external hard drive and a computer monitor to their phone.

To snag the Display Dock, which is free for a limited time from Microsoft, you need to open the Lumia Offers app that is pre-installed on your Lumia 950 XL. Make sure it is updated to the latest version of the app. Open it and claim the free Dock. Microsoft will then send you a promotion code that you can use when checking out of the Microsoft Store. The code will take $99 off of the purchase price, effectively making it free. The Microsoft Store has posted that the Dock will arrive in 3 to 7 business days, which explains why many of you have received a notification that it is being shipped.

The Nokia Lumia 950 XL is not available in the U.S. from any carrier. It can only be purchased from a physical or online Microsoft Store The smaller Microsoft Lumia 950 is being offered in the states by AT&T.

The real question is who are the phantom people that pre-ordered.. since day one (and many after in which I got emails saying they were available.. ) I can never preorder the damn thing. I finally called the MS Store hotline and they put me on a list to be next. Who ever heard of a website not allowing you to PREORDER due to being out of stock.. isn't it assumed it is out of stock if you are PREORDERING the damn thing. Its like MS wants the phone to fail.

I see comments for the MS "Surface" smart phone a recent blog says it's Edge browser is being tested so that indicates the MS "Surface" smartphone Prototype exists. whether MS decides to have them on the market place is unknown ! however it is rumored that they use Intel ATOM smartphone CPU'S and are capable of running full windows 10 OS, Run Windows x86 32 Desktop programs which number in the Millions, Run MS Universal Apps, and run the Windows 10 Store Apps. if all of this is true this is a powerful smart phone. it also means that there will be 2 types of Windows smart phones a Windows 10 Mobile OS ARMS CPU type like Current windows smart phones and the more robust "Surface" full windows 10 operating system smart phone which will be a true Smartphone Pocket PC hybrid. a lot of folks will buy them for sure.

It's a shame reviewers did not give fair enough reviews on the 950/950XL smart phones.1=they were created to give windows smart phones fans a device to upgrade to. this they secede in doing. 2=the physical tech inside them is flagship tech. 3=The new Windows 10 OS has some bugs but is quite usable folks this a Windows 10 OS it will get continuous updates and new features. 4=The continuum mode is great for those who may want to use it. As a side note there are fancy new backs that cover it's sides and have fancy leather back's that make the MS Lumia 950 or 950XL smart phone look GREAT !

Canadians pay $200 more for these phones with no free continuum dock. Do a little more research before mentioning Canada in your rant next time!

With the dollar exchange + duties on the goods it just wouldn't be worth the effort. Same with buying online and then paying all that plus shipping.
