re re re, 19 Jul 2016And you think everyone uses their phone to chase virtual monsters. SmhThe current state of Windows 10 Mobile desperately needs "everyone" that you described... just sayin'
slmjmn, 19 Jul 2016windows smartphone will not be getting whatsapp anymore Yeah wash your mouth with pesticide before trolling. Whatsapp already have a client for Windows 10 phones.
the number of people who will be buying this will be no more, if not just as much as it's price tag
"HP has finally decided to unveil its official pricing for the Elite x3 Windows 10 smartphone in the US."
Can you say clearly if it's the real Windows 10 that I have on my hybrid-ultrabook, and laptop, or Windows Phone OS????
How many times shall I ask you GSMA?
Or making it misty is the part of the game?
This handset is specifically designed with enterprise users in mind which is capable of running x86 apps through a virtualization technology by HP. It also has continuum support. So both hardware wise and software wise, the price is justifiable. It's cheaper than some unlocked mobile devices.
Hello HP, no one wants a WP that much expensive even if made by apple :-P

MS is pitching Windows as a single OS, a service which can be used in multitude of hardwares like PC, Laptops, Tablets, Phones, VR devices which has a common core. Here the consumer using couple of these devices will have a same experience with all those devices. The developer also can create a single app which can be deployed on all these devices. Windows 10 Mobile market may be small but the PC, tablet 2 in 1 is bigger than anyone else. Microsoft was late to the mobile party and thats why it is suffering now but this is the best possible strategy it has taken to take on the mobile competition. Developer sooner rather than later will be enticed to develop for Windows 10(not Windows 10 Mobile particularly) which will be deployed to mobile too.
Talking about the mobile itself, Windows 10 Mobile is a fantastic system and is getting polished and updated at a fast pace. I use it for everyday use and find it great.
So if you understand the strategy, like the system than stay with MS/Windows else you can leave and enjoy other platforms.
ConsumerG, 18 Jul 2016Stuck record here but DOA at that price... I could have been interested at $499 for the hands... moreThe hardware is much more powerful than the Iphone, so hardware wise it is worth it. If you like Windows 10 and in the ecosystem, this is the best you can buy
Remember the phone is aimed at enterprises not people who play pokemon GO or the average consumer
Anonymous, 18 Jul 2016why android ? windows is more useful.
you want android, then get note 7, don't look here. How is it useful when the platform is essentially dead? How does having less than 1% of the market share with little to no app support equate to being useful to the end user?
You know what else had less than 1% market share? Windows mobile, blackberry OS, symbian, etc. I wonder what happen to them...
re re re, 19 Jul 2016And you think everyone uses their phone to chase virtual monsters. SmhMaybe not you and me. But millions do. The point is it lack important apps and always step behind the others.
