The first Windows 10 Mobile phone is about to hit the market, and AT&T announced Monday that it will be the first carrier to sell one. The company confirmed that the Microsoft Lumia 950 will be available beginning tomorrow, November 17, online and will be in stores starting Friday, November 20.
We went hands-on with the Lumia 950 not to long ago and were most impressed by the Continuum experience, which allows you to hook the phone up to a special Microsoft dock and use it with an HDMI or DisplayPort monitor and a keyboard/mouse. Apps that were designed to run on all Windows devices, such as Office and Outlook, in addition to a growing number of third party apps, will scale to run on the larger display. In addition to a sharp 5.2-inch Quad HD display, you’ll find a Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage and a 3,000mAh battery. The phone also supports a beta version of Windows Hello, which allows you to log into the device after it scans your Iris.
The Lumia 950 will cost $149.99 with a new two-year contract, $19.97 per month on AT&T Next 24, $24.96 a month on AT&T Next 18 or $29.95 on AT&T Next 12. Customers who buy the Lumia 950 with AT&T Next can get a Surface 3 for $399.99 on a two-year contract.
