Microsoft's Lumia 950 won't be an AT&T exclusive

Microsoft's Lumia 950 won't be an AT&T exclusive
Yesterday, shortly after Microsoft announced the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, AT&T confirmed that it would launch the 950 in the US (possibly starting November). Since no other carrier revealed plans to sell any of Microsoft's two new smartphones, we were wondering if the 950 was an AT&T exclusive. Thankfully, it's not.

According to CNET, the deal between Microsoft and AT&T to sell the Lumia 950 "is not an exclusive one", which means that we might see the handset offered by other US carriers at some point. Of course, might plays an important role here - we don't know if the 950 will actually be sold by anyone else except AT&T and Microsoft.

The Lumia 950 and 950 XL are the world's first smartphones to run Windows 10 our of the box. The former is the smaller among the two, thanks to the fact that it has a 5.2-inch Quad HD display, instead of the 5.7-inch Quad HD screen of the XL variant. The Lumia 950 offers lots of other high-end features, including iris scanner, a 20 MP PureView rear camera with triple LED flash and 4K video recording, 3 GB of RAM, a six-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a 3000 mAh battery with quick charging capabilities.

Off contract, the Microsoft Lumia 950 will cost $549. Do you think this is the right price for the handset?
