Microsoft may have admitted defeat with Windows Phone platform, but new smartphones with the power of Windows 10 could still be arriving soon. Reports have claimed that Windows 10 fans will soon be able to enjoy Microsoft’s latest software on the go thanks to a new release from HP.
The release could even help widen the reach of Windows 10 to mobile devices of all shapes and sizes, thanks to one of the software’s cleverest features. The company is reportedly preparing a successor to the HP Elite x3, a rather odd hybrid phablet device that it released back in August.
Sources seeking to Dr. Windows claim that the new HP device will be firmly in the mid-range when it comes to hardware, packing a Snapdragon 600-series processor, which puts it far behind many other leading devices on the market today.
However where this device will stand out from the crowd will be in its Windows 10 capability. HP designed the Elite x3 to take advantage of the Continuum feature in Windows 10, which allows users to seamless work across multiple devices.
For example, you could start working on a document on your home PC, before continuing via a mobile or tablet device when travelling, with all changes being sent directly to the cloud. The original Elite x3 also came with accessories that allowed it to connect up to a monitor or other kind of display to act as a mini desktop computer.
