AnonD-574885, 21 Aug 2016windows OS is beautifulBeauty is in the eye of the beholder and no one wants it. WP is at 1% market share and falling.

Android and iOS are the ones who need to catch up here, and not the other way around.
A Windows phone that acts like a laptop where i can put printer, projector, dvd drive, with free wireless mouse and compact keyboard, cables inside the box etc... everything a laptop can do.. boom! My money is yours baby! (Oh dont forget a dslr like quality camera. Thats very important)
This phone was launch more than 6 months ago, several other flagship phones have been launch and released, yet this phone is nowhere to be found. Now, they will have a tough time competing with the Galaxy note 7. Microsoft and it's OEM must have to realized that in today's phone market, you only launch your device only when it's ready for market same or next day. Launching 6 months before releasing to market is a good recipe for DOA (dead on arrival) regardless whether the product is for enterprise or general consumers.
[deleted post]I have read and I think this device will be a big failure in the mobil market even with a big price cut. Go and read Gartners latest report on Windows Phone/Mobile. The marketshare have dropped drastic compared to the previous quarter. It will mean that companys will soon pull out app support with that low marketshare.
In short Windows Phone/Mobile are a dead platform.
vasra, 19 Aug 2016why bother with WP anymore? It has almost shrunk to zero market share and shrinking further.... moreAnd how do you feel when you have the same phone UI like everybody else you know on earth. The same phone UI in your son is the same UI you have...Above all, how do you feel having to travel and walk with bulging pockets filled with battery backups? All because of the battery hog Android? Win10M assures you of a different mobile experience, away from more than 90% of mobile users globally. Just try the Lumia 650 and see how thin and light it is, yet you are guaranteed with a whole day of usage!

Lumia 650 (previously Lumia 640XL) is now my main phone, and my Note 5 is a secondary device. With a Note 5 accessing the calendar means two or three clicks, the same when you want to get to contacts, or any other app. Also Microsoft has an excellent update process, imagine even phones with 8GB storage are still getting updates, such as the likes of Nokia 1320. If those were Android phones they will be running archaic Os by now. Wake up friends!

Your forthcoming Android nougat is copying a few features from Windows mobile btw. such as the replying messages through notifications etc.
Meh..personally my experience with w10m is similar to Android minus the functionality...Random reboots,frequent app crashes,slow and laggy...sd card errors...
Idk but I'll be better off with an Android after 5 yrs of Windows platform..SOON
I guess HP have realised that very few people are interested in this device, including the business people. To expensive. Something priced around BlackBerry DTEK50 would be more interesting for them.
They should not have trusted Microsoft in any phone related matters with the changing in strategy all the time, the new strategy might be Windows apps in iOS and Android.
Fabri25, 19 Aug 2016Why would they try to sell something like this for $700 when Windows phones is almost dead??? ... moreApps are not the most important thing.. With big phone websites work wonderfully. Websites have great mobile versions these days. . Even chrome is retiring apps with In Couple of tears in favour of web. So just maybe apps are finally running out of smoke
Some people really not aware what is deference here, cause other phone no Desk Dock to connect so that you can use as computer, the reason why HP sell little bit high they phone are awesome and tough and cool.
