Microsoft confirms $99 price for Lumia 950 and 950 XL Display Dock accessory
Microsoft has now confirmed the price of its Display Dock accessory for its upcoming Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL smartphones to be $99. That price point for this accessory is the same as we exclusively reported it would be back in July.
According to Computerworld:
As shown during Microsoft's hardware press event earlier this week, the Display Dock will allow owners of the Lumia 950 or 950 XL to connect it to a keyboard, mouse and large monitor, so that the smartphone can be used much like a PC with its Continuum feature. The dock includes three full-sized USB ports, a DisplayPort and one port for HDMI. That demo included Microsoft's Bryan Roper declaring that the Display Dock will let him "be productive like a boss wherever I am now!" You can even buy a t-shirt with that memorable phrase right now at Windows Central.

P.S. Sorry for my French
Would the average person carry this? Besides students and enterprise.
It is however, great for students and were they to add the ability to stream some games to the phone from the XBox when the phone is connected to the hub, well, then they might be able to justify that price. Posted via Spaceship One
So the same person who drops $650 on a cell phone thinks $100 for what appears to be a quality accessory is gonna stomp his feet? I just don't get it. This is excellent kit. All of it. And I plan to splurge on an equally gorgeous monitor. (hope touchscreen support is coming) Can't wait to RDP on the big screen while still using the phone. Crazy cool. Unplug and walk away. Carrying nothing but a 6" slice.
1. DisplayPort (so what is it? Hi tech...)
3. 3 USB 3.0 ports
Lumia phones does include free Microsoft Words, Excel, OneNote, and Presentation. All these will synchronize as a desktop when connect to dock station and monitor.
Bring this along if you are on any trip with your Lumia 950 XL so you can also play video or movie connect it to the TV's HDMI as Lumia 950 can use 500GB(impress!) micro SD. You can play 4k video. What a deal!
