The One year old ‘HP Elite x3′ features some impressive specs, but the fact it runs Windows Mobile makes it attractive to a very small group of enterprise customers.
The ‘HP Elite x3′ is practically what the Surface Phone should have been (it can be a topic of debate). Well at least in terms of features and specs ” –
HP says that will never come to Pass, thanks to Microsoft reversing directions and practically abandoning Windows 10 Mobile.
Imagine people’s surprise, when HP put the Elite x3 up for sale again, this time compatible with Verizon’s network. Even after a good year after the device was launched.
It is, perhaps HP’s subtle way of assuring customers and still-interested buyers that it hasn’t abandoned the device just yet.
There were rumors that HP would be putting an end to support for the Elite x3 in early 2018, which the company strongly denied. Putting it up again for sale probably aims to reinforce that.
Even though Elite x3 is more than a year old, it still has some pretty impressive specs.
It’s not completely dated either, It ran on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.
The display is a large 5.96-inch WQHD AMOLED screen and naturally ran Windows 10 Mobile.
The unlocked HP Elite x3,
bundled with the compatible Desk Dock, is available on the Microsoft Store for $800. The Verizon version is currently available for $600 in the Windows Store and through Verizon Enterprise Solutions.
