Earlier today, WindowsUnited reported that HP will discontinue sales of the Elite x3 this November. The report has been making the usual rounds on the internet, and frankly, the news wouldn't be surprising given the state of Windows 10 Mobile and the lack of hardware.
But fortunately for Windows phone fans, it's not true, as HP has confirmed to Neowin that it plans to sell the Elite x3 'through 2019'. A spokesperson for the company has offered the following statement:
HP is always responding to customer feedback to deliver the best product experiences. We remain committed to our mobility strategy and vision and will sell the Elite x3 through 2019 while continuing to enhance our portfolio delivering multi-OS devices, accessories and workflow transformation solutions. Mobility is an exciting and rapidly evolving area, and HP will continue to explore ways to address our customers’ mobile computing needs.
HP's Windows 10 Mobile solution is a unique one, using virtualization for Win32 support through its Workspace service, and a heavy focus on Continuum, which allows customers to use their phone like they would a desktop PC, or even a laptop. The bundle with the Desk Dock is still available from the Microsoft Store.
But for the foreseeable future, HP will continue to sell its '3-in-1 PC', along with a variety of other devices from the Elite lineup.
