HP Elite x3 is serious businessAfter failing to break into phones in the past, HP is back with a high-end smartphone focused on business customers.
HP is getting back into phones, again. The biggest PC maker in the US on Sunday revealed the new HP Elite x3. A top shelf Windows smart phone. It's banging Olson speakers, a speedy Qualcomm processor And a nearly 6 inch screen but after HP repeatedly tried and failed to break into phones,the company is taking a different approach this time. This phone is for business costumers. The concept for the device which expected to start shipping this summer is to offer busy execs a non stop shop for their computing needs. The phone has a special dock that lets someone use it essentially like a desktop. And it also has something called a mobile extender, which is basically a laptop without any brains inside that connects to the phone. The idea there is for users to get the experience of a bigger screen and full keyboard. Pricing for the phone, and these accessories by the way, hasn't been said. HP is hoping to sell the phone directly to companies, not at retail stores. Time will tell whether the elite X3's extra accessories and business focus will be enough to help HP finally make a phone that people want. [MUSIC]
