Microsoft got a lot of press this week with the announcement of its upcoming Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL smartphones. However, they don't appear to get much love from Canada's main wireless carriers. A new report says none of them plan to carry the Windows 10 Mobile devices.
The report, via unnamed sources, comes from Canada-based MobileSyrup, who previously reported that Rogers would not sell the new Lumias and later amended that report with more information:
"MobileSyrup has learned that as of now no carriers intend on selling the Lumia 950 or Lumia 950 XL in Canada. Microsoft intends to sell the phone through its own in-store and Ecommerce channels outright and unlocked, for $749 and $849 CAD respectively".
"There is a possibility this will change, but we've heard from sources at Rogers, Bell and Telus . . . that the carriers chose to pass on the handset."
In the US, only AT&T has announced plans to sell the Lumia 950, but T-Mobile CEO John Legere posted on his Twitter account this week that his carrier is open to selling the phones if Microsoft makes them an offer.
