Lumia 950 XL

If you were fast enough to pre-order the unlocked Lumia 950 XL from the US Microsoft Store site last week, you might be getting your smartphone delivered to your door on Wednesday. We have received tips from many Windows Central readers informing us that the 5.7-inch Windows 10 Mobile device is now shipping.

Those customers are indeed the lucky ones as the US Microsoft Store quickly sold out of its first shipment of the Lumia 950 XL, and also sold out of a second group of phones that are slated to begin shipping in mid-December. With the exception of one or two brief openings last week, the listing for the $649 phone is no longer accepting orders, with "Email me when available" buttons now visible on the site.

However, if you live near a Microsoft Store retail location in the US, you might be able to buy a Lumia 950 XL on Thanksgiving Day, November 26. Again, keep in mind that due to the holiday, some stores will have different opening and closing hours, and some may not open that day at all.

Thanks again to everyone who tipped us!
