Both Lumia 950 / XL coming to AT&T, while T-Mobile may carry only Lumia 950

Quite interesting tidbits about Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL‘s possible destinations in US of A via our sources. Recent info that we got from our sources tells us that AT&T may carry both the devices and may start selling them in November (1st-2nd week).

Even T-Mobile has signed to carry at least one of them and we hear it is Lumia 940 that will be carried by T-Mobile, but it may or may not be as soon as AT&T. We haven’t heard anything about Verizon and Sprint’s plans yet but will keep asking about them from our sources.
