Why would they try to sell something like this for $700 when Windows phones is almost dead??? I gave Windows phone a couple tries and they never got it right. People depends on apps for smartphones to work. That was my reason to leave windows phone.
microsoft can push all windows phones in the a$$ , if they dont do nothing about importing apps from playstore or ios ; project astoria is dead, they cancel it ; no will see how much time it will take for developer`s to use xamarin , wake up microsoft - we dont leave in ice age ; need more apps - windows store lak`s of apps
finnaly good phone...microsoft not make ever...nokia lumia 930 ...and then...nothing. for long time.....design...qulity...go Windows...more stable the another OS for buissnes..
why not alowed to coustumer make a choice OS on every brand mobile as a coulore or memory card?
simply the best way to get more prodactivity for any company....start to think!
Hugo Schatz, 19 Aug 2016Windows phone can't play Pokemon Go.I dont think anyone plays pokemon go anymore mate.
That aside this is still about £300 too expensive when you consider the alternatives with comparable specs being the Oneplus Three and ZTE Axon 7. Not like HP are even a premium brand or using premium materials.
Anonymous, 19 Aug 2016who on earth would buy this for 700!? This could a great device for an actual, working professional who travels and is a 'mobile worker'. If you want to play Pokeman and send Instagram pictures of your breakfast and snapchat with other teenagers, buy something else. I suspect that most mobile professionals are, like me, in the Sales arena. For us, email is king, powerpoint is queen, contact management is the pope, and almost every other app we need to access like salesforce.com is accessed through a web browser. Contacts management is absolutely atrocious on iOS, and not much Android. (and those Instagram-style apps keep stealing into your contacts). It is so much easier to have it consolidated into a single device that is backed up automatically and has secure biometrics. I don't need a toy. I need a tool to help me make money and support my family.

your better off buying a lumia 950 with continuum.
Anyway since when did mobiles start costing nearly a grand?
clickabhee, 19 Aug 2016I am just curious... why and how would Microsoft push the HP Elite release... shouldn't it be ... more"The price cut brings the cost of the bundle inline with what HP is officially selling it for. "
It really is a short article
so AVAILABLE from HP
ALSO AVAILABLE from Microsoft..... now at the same price as HP
Microsoft was already pretty famous for delaying mobile operating system roll outs again & again, & now mobile device :/
Yeah, like they pushed the 950 and 950XL. Put a fork in it, Microsoft is out of mobile phone business. They committed suicide.
