HP follows Microsoft’s Continuum process with its Elite X3 phone. The company’s strategy to go back to the phone industry with its Elite X3 did not come easily, especially due to the organization’s reputation of failing in the mobile segment.
HP’s unfortunate decision to acquire Palm five years ago, which it stopped its activity in 2014, has took its toll on the organization. After the company’s major plans for Palm’s operating system for mobile phones were ended, there were combined points of view and many inner conversations over the probability of returning to the mobile market.
Finally, HP determined that phone customers cannot be ignored and handsets are a bigger part in processing these days. They can be almost similar to laptop computers in power and the kinds of programs they can work with.
HP prefers a careful approach though, creating a longer strategy for success. The main item in this battle is Elite X3, a device with a display of almost 6” and that operates on Windows 10 for businesses. The platform is open for releasing a customer device, said the company’s reps, admitting the rumors circulating in the market for a while.
HP is attempting to make its Elite X3 model stand out in comparison to other competitors by placing it as the phone that can be used as a notebook too. Users can connect it to a display, with a keyboard and mouse and convert the extremely quick X3 handset into a functional laptop.
Past initiatives to present devices with identical abilities have unsuccessful, the most significant example being represented by the Motorola Atrix, released a few years ago. But HP’s officials said that development in technology permitted the company to build up a phone that will work as a notebook when needed.
Windows 10 Mobile was important in enabling HP to change the form factor and it let app designers to create universal programs that can function across several systems and permit mobile phones to use PC software from its could service.
HP’s Elite X3 sports a Snapdragon 820 chip, which is among the quickest mobile processors available right now. The SoC, which is aimed at PCs and tablets too, is up to four times quicker than other Qualcomm chips from previous series.
HP developed a multi-level strategy for smart phone industry and the initial one is to launch Elite X3, that will be released later these months. The latter is to collaborate with app designers and merchants to modify legacy Windows programs so that these will run in cloud and will be utilized with phones.
