Unlocked-Mobiles now taking Lumia 950 and 950 XL pre-orders, launch set for December 2
UK retailer Unlocked-Mobiles has commenced pre-orders of the Lumia 950 and 950 XL, offering 32GB SIM-free variants in white and black color options. However, the retailer is stating that first stock won't be due until December 2.
The Lumia 950 is listed for £479 ($743) including VAT, while the 950 XL can be pre-ordered for £529 ($820). That's slightly lower than what's listed on the Microsoft Store in the country.
Several retailers will carry Microsoft's latest handsets, but at this stage, Unlocked-Mobiles is the only vendor to begin taking pre-orders. We should be hearing from the likes of Carphone Warehouse, Clove (opens in new tab), and others shortly.

5 phones and a scratch in the same place?
Too much to be coincidental. Edit: It's on the screen, near the speaker but all the scratches were different in length.
A lot of standard users don't care about liquid cooling etc, they may go "ooh, sounds interesting" but it won't be enough to make them change ecosystem if they are in same price bracket as something they know and have invested money for apps in.
These are great phones and price's for us in the enthusiast market but I think they have missed a chance by not being more aggressive with pricing.
Let's hope for some massive marketing and help from retail and networks.
