Pre-orders for the upcoming Lumia 950 XL smartphone from Microsoft started earlier this week from the US and Canadian Microsoft Store sites, with a listed ship date of November 25. Now it looks like the first batch has been claimed and any new orders for the Windows 10 Mobile device will now be shipped to customers on December 11.

This shows, at the very least, that Microsoft's initial shipment order for the Lumia 950 XL has run out, but of course we don't know just how many of those smartphones were available in that first shipment. In any case, new orders will have to wait nearly a month before they can get the smartphone.

Keep in mind that orders for the Lumia 950 XL from both sites are eligible to get a free Display Dock for the phone from now until January 31, 2016.
