North American residents were the first to have Microsoft's Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL smartphones shipped to them but it looks like some other countries are not that far behind. Windows Central readers from the Netherlands and the Czech Republic have received emails stating that the phones they pre-ordered are now being shipped and could arrive today.

Microsoft's launch of its first Windows 10 Mobile smartphones will continue next week as the company plans to hold a press event in India for those phones on November 30. Other countries that are scheduled to see shipments of the phones begin next week include the UK, Ireland and the Philippines.

Thanks to everyone for the tips!
