HP Elite x3 Windows phablet coming soon
HP announced the Elite x3 phablet back in February, at this year's Mobile World Congress event that took place in Barcelona, as usual. Now, the company has just confirmed its arrival on the market. The phablet and its rich ecosystem of accessories and solutions will hit the market later this month, but the x3 solution bundles are planned to begin shipping in the US on August 29.
According to HP, the Elite x3 bundle consists of the Windows phablet itself, a premium headset, and a desk dock. Its price is expected to start at $799 USD, while the handset alone should retail for at least $699 USD. However, its retail package also includes a premium headset. In addition to the above, a lap dock accessory should hit the market as well. Unfortunately, its price has not been unveiled yet.
HP Elite x3 is both MIL-STD 810G- and IP67-certified, and its maker advertises it as "the first built-for-business mobile device to deliver seamless phablet, laptop and desktop business productivity in a single device." Its global rollout begins at the end of the month, with launch dates and prices depending on region.
