HP's Elite x3 Win10 phablet will go up for order September 5
Remember that Elite X3 phablet from HP? The six-inch Windows 10 phone could be the device that delivers on all the promise of Windows Continuum. Earlier in the year, HP said it was targeting a late-July release for the phone, but a quick search doesn't find it listed anywhere for sale. HP confirmed early last month that it would begin selling the phone bundled with desk and lap-oriented docks August 29, but it wasn't clear when the phone would be available by itself. That is, until yesterday. Neowin got a statement from HP in which the company said the phone will start selling through its website on September 5.
In case you missed it, the HP Elite X3 is a business-oriented Windows 10 Mobile smartphone. It uses a 6" AMOLED display to show off its UWP apps, and it's powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC. Both as a high-end phone and as a phablet, the device is pretty unusual in the Windows 10 Mobile ecosystem, and it has quite a few features (like an iris scanner) usually found only on the latest superphones from Samsung or Apple. HP says the phone will be $799 bundled with the desk dock, or $699 by itself.
