More evidence suggests Verizon will carry the HP Elite x3 flagship

There’s much talk surrounding HP’s old Windows Phone flagship, the Elite x3, which is supposed to be launched in the United States at Verizon. Apparently, discussions between the major carrier and HP began early this summer, but nothing concrete was decided.

Last month, Verizon certified the HP Elite x3, but the smartphone is still MIA. Today, Microsoft revealed all the smartphones that are eligible for its new Windows 10 Fall Creators update and the HP Elite x3 (Verizon model) is listed among them.

That’s another reason that we believe Verizon will eventually …


HP Elite x3 still coming to Verizon?

During July, which seems so long ago, there was talk that the HP Elite x3 was heading to Verizon. For those of you unfamiliar with the Elite x3, it is a highly spec’d Windows 10 Mobile powered phablet. Actually designed for enterprise use, we have had a couple of months go past and yet, the HP Elite x3 remains unavailable at Verizon. From all appearances, it seems as though the Elite x3 has received its Verizon certification. It does offer Continuum2, which allows you to create a Frankenstein-like desktop PC using the HP Elite x3.  With Windows Hello, you can unlock the phone with a fingerprint, …

HP Elite X3 to reach its End of Life on Nov 1? HP says no, phone to run through 2019

The HP Elite x3 has had the best specs of any Windows 10 Mobile powered handset since the device was launched last December. Now, there is talk that the Elite x3 will go EOL on November 1st. For those of you unaccustomed to playing alphabet soup, EOL stands for ‘End of Life’ and it means that the phone will no longer be sold after that date. The report, out of Germany, would give the phone 5 more weeks on the shelves before getting pulled for good.

The problem here isn’t just HP’s fault. Microsoft’s decision to stop working on Windows 10 Mobile prevented HP from updating the Elite x3. According …

Jabra Elite 25e hands on

Rising from the ashes of a once booming Bluetooth headset
market, Jabra has successfully transitioned into making earphones and other
audio accessories – a feat that one of its main competitors *cough* Jawbone *cough* could not do. Earlier
this year Jabra released a pair of wireless sport earbuds, which boasted a
solid feature-set at a good price. This week the company has released a more
casual, but still “elite” follow-up: The Elite 25e.

 

The Elite 25e is a
behind the neck set of earphones, with buds strung along at either end of the
neck piece. The silicon buds themselves …

Jabra's new Elite 25e neckbuds promise best-in-class battery at a fair price

Around-the-neck wireless earphones are quite popular nowadays. Although people wearing them might be labeled as fashion criminals by some, these gadgets do have certain advantages – they don’t tangle, and they generally offer more time between charges than truly wireless earphones.

 
Today, Jabra unveiled an intriguing pair of neckbuds at the IFA ShowStoppers press event in Berlin. They are called the Elite 25e, and Jabra is selling them for $79,99/€79,99.
What do you get for that price? First and foremost, a battery life of 18 hours. …

HP is experimenting with Android for a successor to the Elite X3, rumor claims

HP’s Elite X3 might just have been the best Windows 10 Mobile device nobody bought. Reasons for this include its considerably high price tag, its focus on the enterprise, as well as possibly its biggest problem: the fact it runs Windows. But even a company as badly mismanaged as HP (hey, remember that time they bought Palm and ran it right into the ground in just a year?) knows when it’s got a good idea, and a recent rumor suggests the company is working on a successor.

And that idea is a smartphone that, when connected to a dock, results in a seamless …

HP Elite x3 coming to Verizon?

The HP Elite x3 is the most capable of any Windows 10 Mobile handset. Currently, the device is offered only with support for GSM bands, but that appears likely to change. HP is working on obtaining new certifications for the Elite x3, this time with support listed specifically for Verizon. That would mean that the new version would have the ability to run over CDMA pipelines. Among the new applications HP sent out include one for the FCC, one for the Bluetooth SIG and another for the Wi-Fi Alliance.

In case you’re not familiar with the phone, the HP Elite x3 features a 6-inch AMOLED display …

New Lap Dock for the HP Elite x3 sequel made an unassuming appearance at MWC

As we told you the other day, the most powerful Windows 10 Mobile handset of all time, the HP Elite x3, could be getting replaced real soon. At MWC, HP had the successor to the Elite x3 enclosed inside a glass container. The new phone looks similar to the Elite x3, although it has thinner bezels and the front-facing camera has been moved to the opposite side. It also appears to no longer carry the speaker at the bottom of the handset.

Also making an appearance at MWC was a new Lap Dock meant for the next version of the Elite x3 (Elite x4?) that seemed to get lost in the excitement of the …

HP video shows why the Elite x3 should be owned by every cop in the field

HP has produced a video that shows various reasons why the Windows 10 Mobile powered  HP Elite x3 smartphone needs to be given out to all cops before they go out on their daily tour. As the video tells us, a typical day could demand that an officer enter evidence, respond to a call, or file paperwork. The HP Elite x3 helps with all of these tasks and more. The 6-inch AMOLED screen has a 1440 x 2560 resolution making it perfect for taking notes during the daily briefing and when reviewing images of suspects. And because it is powered by Windows, the phone is compatible with the department’s …

A new HP Elite x3 Windows smartphone might be coming soon

Last year, at MWC 2016, HP unveiled a very interesting device: the Elite x3, a 6-inch water-resistant smartphone running Windows 10. Now, the company is seemingly planning to introduce a successor to the x3.

PC World spotted a new Elite handset being showcased at MWC 2017 behind a glass enclosure. Reportedly, an HP spokesperson said that this was “an example of how” the company sees the “future iterations of the x3 platform.” At the moment, there’s no further information about the device, so we don’t know when it’s supposed to be officially announced. In any case, we assume that HP will …
