Just as I have gone cold on the idea of ordering a 950XL and am looking at a Nexus 6P Microsoft are now finally taking pre-orders for the new phones. On the Microsoft Store in the UK you can pre-order a 950XL for £529 with a ship date of December 3rd. The smaller 950 costs £449.99 and also ships December 3rd.
They are great looking devices and I am seriously thinking about a 950XL, if only you could side load Android apps on it..,
Thanks to Garry for the tip.
