Display Dock

Update: The UK Microsoft site is also offering the same Display Dock freebie offer for pre-orders of the Lumia 950 XL in that country as well

Original Story: Microsoft is offering a nice freebie for the initial wave of people who order a Lumia 950 XL smartphone in Germany. Those folks will be able to get a free Display Dock for the smartphone from now until January 31, 2016.

The Display Dock is normally an optional accessory for both the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL. It allows those phones to be connected to a PC keyboard and mouse, along with a monitor, so that users can handle tasks on the new Lumias as if they were using a PC. This is due to the Continuum feature that's a part of Windows 10 Mobile.

Here's how German buyers of the Lumia 950 XL can get their free Display Dock, via the translated announcement:

"Who buys a Lumia 950 XL by 31 January 2016 will receive a free Microsoft Display Dock worth 109 Euro . After registering on the pre-installed "Lumia Offers" app on the Lumia 950 XL indicated there Promo code can then be redeemed at the Microsoft Store for a display Dock."

Buyers who get the code have until February 28, 2016 to redeem it to get the free Display Dock.
