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.
