According to an article I just read on mobilesyrup.com the phone won't be available until December Source - http://mobilesyrup.com/2015/10/06/microsoft-announces-lumia-950-and-lumia-950-xl/
If the Lumia 950 is going to be $750 CAD anyone have any idea how much it will cost up front on a 2 year plan from Rogers?
I was gonna tag you on this topic but seems like you already here.
To answer your question @brandonjbarnard
Usually the subsidy on 2yr term on premium tab is 490.01 (in some cases like iPhone its 570.01 - 590.01)
but that is to be determined by Rogers based on demand, stock and how well the phone is already marketed. but the standard is 490.01
Example: 750 - 490.01 = 259.99 on a 2yr term (most likely) - This isn't absolute, this is based on trend.
But it could be cheaper.
Just an FYI - Subsidizing device is almost always cheaper than buying the phone full price. (if you do the math)
I hope Rogers can get more detailed info soon and start taking pre-orders. I plan on ordering two 950's.
I'm looking forward to the Lumia 950 XL. I've had my Lumia 920 for three years and it's in need of replacing very soon.
Most likely mid November / End of November the pre orders will start as they usually open the reservation system 1-2 weeks before release. The info for pricing & such should come out sometime soon. Stay tuned!
I hope Rogers is willing to do more for the Windows platform than it has in the past. It's front line staff knows almost nothing about Microsoft's phones, and Rogers does almost no promotion of the phones and the platform on its website. I bought my 920 via Rogers not because of Rogers, but because I couldn't get the 920 fast enough from any other carrier.
In any case, my 920 needs to be replaced, and I'll buy my 950XL straight from Microsoft if I have to. Looks like a great phone and I love its integration into the MS ecosystem.
As a 1020 owner whose contract is up in December I've been eagerly awaiting these new phones. I am interested to hear how the camera is.
