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 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.
