HP Elite x3 still coming to Verizon?

HP Elite x3 still coming to Verizon?
During July, which seems so long ago, there was talk that the HP Elite x3 was heading to Verizon. For those of you unfamiliar with the Elite x3, it is a highly spec'd Windows 10 Mobile powered phablet. Actually designed for enterprise use, we have had a couple of months go past and yet, the HP Elite x3 remains unavailable at Verizon. From all appearances, it seems as though the Elite x3 has received its Verizon certification. It does offer Continuum2, which allows you to create a Frankenstein-like desktop PC using the HP Elite x3.  With Windows Hello, you can unlock the phone with a fingerprint, an iris, or your face. A password is not only unneeded, it is unnecessary.

The Verizon certification means that the Elite x3 has received a certificate (perfect for framing or sticking on a fridge) that shows the phone will work with Big Red's Ev-Do network and on the carrier's CDMA pipeline. The Verizon version of the Elite x3 has been given a thumbs up at the FCC, Wi-Fi Alliance and the Bluetooth SIG.

The latest speculation has the HP Elite x3 coming to Verizon in the middle of next month via either the Microsoft Store or from Verizon's online store. This doesn't necessarily mean that the Elite x3 will be a big hit at Verizon, but it does mean that there is a chance that the highest spec'd Windows 10 Mobile phone has another shot at success.

Im still a fan with great hope, but little expectation, to see this awesome operating system up and running again. Windows phone, to me, was the best Operating System just missing the apps. The OS was smooth, fast, customizable and the apps just flowed. Unfortunately, like WebOS, it is dying because every developer pours the money into two platforms (justifiably).

I was a fan of the Nokia windows phones, preferred them over Android, but Samsung had the S Pen and more apps with the play store so I've never owned a windows phone, just liked the OS design and layout.

This is perfect for those who like being Microsoft's b!tch, otherwise, there's absolutely no point to purchasing a Windows mobile phone. Fukn microsoft themselves don't even take it seriously under the leadership of that curry munching Indian: https://mspoweruser.com/microsoft-ceo-not-get-world-needed-third-ecosystem-phones/

Why don't you trolls get a life? Is your existence so pathetic that all you have to show for is trolling internet articles about Windows phones? Yes, some people like Windows as a mobile OS. They also like BlackBerry, Symbian and webOS.

The OS is very much alive. It now has Windows Core OS.
