By utilizing Continuum in Windows 10, the Elite x3 enables frictionless multi-screen transitions between a phone scenario and a desktop PC scenario. Users can dock the Elite x3 with its ecosystem of accessories to render desktop and laptop productivity experiences while also retaining productivity on-the-go in a world-class premium and commercial-grade phablet.
With this capability, users can effortlessly switch between using the Elite x3 as a desktop, laptop or mobile device, no longer needing to worry about what device to use in what environment. The Elite x3 also utilizes biometrics to unlock the device — adding an extra layer of protection for enterprise customers.
Bruce Howe, General Manager, Consumer Channel Group, Microsoft Malaysia said, “We are proud, and excited to collaborate with HP for the launch of the premium Elite x3, a 3-in-1 business device, powered by Windows 10 Mobile. It boasts the latest features and enhancements, and is designed specifically to encourage productivity for business users. The Elite x3 is packed with amazing built-in features like Continuum, Microsoft’s new Edge browser and Windows Hello that enables users to login securely.”
The Elite x3 offers a unique computing experience by leveraging the power of the Snapdragon 820 processor, Windows 10 Mobile with Windows Continuum, the optional HP Desk Dock and the optional Lap Dock, allowing the device to let people work on their own terms no matter where the locate. Users can also enjoy easier, faster charging with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology.
The Desk Dock offers a full featured desktop experience for the Elite x3. It includes a DisplayPort for external monitor support, two USB-A and a USB-C connection for business continuity, and wired Ethernet to seamlessly scale users’ productivity at their desk. The Elite x3 docks in portrait mode at a comfortable viewing angle when sitting at a desk. The dock also supports the Elite x3 with and without a protective case.
The HP Lap Dock creates a laptop experience using a near zero bezel 12.5-inch diagonal HD display that’s around 1 kg. No data is stored on the Lap Dock for additional security and all of the apps, passwords and files are managed and stored from the Elite x3.
The Elite x3 also allows users to work with the apps they love and rely on. HP Workspace — an app catalog designed by HP to easily enable access to virtualized apps — drives a seamless app usage experience. HP Workspace on the Elite x3 creates a virtual PC, giving users access to company curated catalogs of x86 apps via a virtualized solution. Users benefit from quick access to their virtualized apps with a full keyboard and mouse experience not typically available from a mobile device when using the Desk Dock and Lap Dock.
The Elite x3 platform has the potential to change how companies work using only a single device. HP is partnering with Salesforce, the world’s #1 CRM platform, to include Salesforce1 on every Elite x3. Salesforce1 sets a new standard for CRM, empowering users to run their businesses from their mobile devices with powerful tools that work in the cloud, keeping them up-to-date with whatever real-time data they need.
