Microsoft can’t sell Lumias so it’s giving them away

Microsoft’s Lumia smartphones aren’t selling very well, at least not compared to Android and iOS devices, which dominate the global smartphone market. So, now, Microsoft is trying to entice buyers by giving away a Lumia 950 when you buy a Lumia 950 XL in the U.S. Not a bad deal if you dig Windows Phone.

The sale had been available in other parts of the world and is now here in the U.S. with a promise to ship within just two days. Seems like Microsoft probably has a warehouse of these phones somewhere that it needs to get rid of. The Lumia 950 XL is priced at $649.00. Considering the Lumia 950 usually costs about $549 solo, and that you’re getting it for free here, you might want to consider selling one of the phones on eBay, potentially netting you a very affordable high-end Windows Phone.

Or you could just stay on the bandwagon and ignore the Lumias, as millions of other people continue to do.
