How HP's Elite x3 Smartphone Can Power Your Next PC

By Todd R. Weiss  |  Posted 2016-02-26

With its new Elite x3 smartphone, HP is taking a fresh approach to the world of mobile enterprise computing by pairing the powerful device with an optional notebooklike mobile dock that includes a display and keyboard, but no motherboard, processor or storage. Instead, the mobile dock, called a Mobile Extender by HP, just adds its keyboard and display to the smartphone, which provides all of the computing power, connectivity, storage and other productivity features. The Elite x3, which runs Microsoft Windows 10, also can be used with an optional Desk Dock that allows users to plug the ultra-mobile smartphone into a desktop monitor, keyboard, mouse, printers and more for use as an office or home office computer. The Elite x3 product line, which was announced by HP on Feb. 21 at Mobile World Congress, is aimed at giving enterprise users wide-ranging productivity right from a smartphone. The Elite x3 uses Windows 10's Continuum feature to allow users to bridge their work across any devices that are running Windows 10. Peruse this eWEEK slide show for more information.
