Microsoft gives away a free Display Dock with each Lumia 950 XL in UK and DE

29 October, 2015

Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are the first Windows 10 running smartphones. Both are powerful enough to use the so-called Continuum feature - that's the ability to turn your phone into a full-fledged PC by plugging in an external monitor and a keyboard via the Microsoft Display Dock. This in theory make for lighter packing when traveling or save you the expense of a standalone computer.

Both Lumia smartphones are now available on pre-order as is the Display Dock, required for the phone-to-PC magic. This small gadget is quite expensive though, it costs about 75 in Europe.

Luckily, Microsoft will be throwing this dock for free if you get a Lumia 950 XL via the Microsoft's official online stores in UK and Germany. The dock itself won't come bundled with your Lumia 950 XL though. Instead you'll get a promo voucher and you'll have to order it for free from the Microsoft Online Store.

"Buy a Lumia 950 XL and get a free Microsoft Display Dock * * Valid with purchase of 950 XL and offer registration between 20th November 2015 and 31st January 2016, while supplies last. Redeem promotional code through the online Microsoft Store by 28th February 2016. Valid credit or debit card required at time of redemption. Terms and Conditions apply."

We hope other Microsoft stores across the globe offer the same promotion - it's sure a clever way to make more people switch to Windows 10. This promotion does NOT apply for the regular Lumia 950.

Both Lumia 950 (599) and Lumia 950 XL (699, 530) will kick off on November 28.
