Unlocked Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL now available in (some) retail stores across the US
If you don't want to buy the Lumia 950 from AT&T (which launched it last week), you can now get the handset directly from Microsoft, which is offering it unlocked for $549.

Apart from being available to order online, Windows Central reports that the Lumia 950 can also be found in various Microsoft retail locations across the US. Moreover, it's said that its bigger brother, the Lumia 950 XL, is also available in some retail stores. Meanwhile, the 950 XL can't be ordered online, instead of an "Order" or "Pre-order" button Microsoft showing an "Email me when available" button with a "ships by December 11" mention attached.

Both the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL come with Windows 10 on board, being the world's first smartphones to run Microsoft's new version of the OS out of the box. While the Lumia 950 sports a 5.2-inch Quad HD display and is powered by a six-core Snapdragon 808 processor, the Lumia 950 XL has a 5.7-inch Quad HD screen, and relies on an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor. The 950 XL also includes a larger battery: 3340 mAh vs. 3000 mAh. Obviously, the Lumia 950 XL is more expensive than the regular 950, costing $649 unlocked.
