    A LOT of people are excited about this phone and all the specs it carries, but I'm actually worried about general availability. Is this gonna be marketed to consumers? Because I thought I read that this was ONLY being marketed (and consequently, supplied) to businesses, and wouldn't be available to the average consumer to purchase?

    I think we'll have to wait and see how available it is.

    My understanding is that although it will be sold through enterprise changes mainly, consumers will be able to purchase direct from HP (maybe also some resellers/distributors). HP won't be spending the cash on consumer marketing though.

    Haha ikr, if this phone sells good like am expecting it to... Then the price won't be dropping early... But I've already played out a bunch of scenarios. I could even wait till January 2016 if the price is high at $750-850.

    Would gladly get it early if the price is between 600-700

    Lmao honestly, it gives them enough time to get things right and maybe by then Windows 10 mobile would be more stable. But still!!!! 8 MONTHS damn! I think it's even September.

    Hopefully it's a reasonable launch price

    Maybe but from the announcement you could see the prototype wasn't even finished. So maybe it's just HP being slow. Hopefully this phone and W10 Mobile won't disappoint

    Yesterday we had a good news: HP Elite x3 will be available in Taiwan this September:
    ?????Phablet????????? | ???? | 20160407 | ????
    (Sorry, this news was written in Traditional Chinese)

    I think I may give Microsoft Lumia 950 couple months, if months later Lumia 950 series are still not available in Taiwan, then......bye bye Lumia 950, hello Hp Elite x3!!

    I don't think so... I'm pretty sure this will be a world release.

    Now May 3, 2016 - the last rumor was "might be moved up to June versus August"???

    Well, I poked around for a few minutes and found these two new updates:

    1) HP Elite X3 Release Date, Price and Specs - CNET

    2) MOST encouraging = the official HP site with "Notify me" and "surprisingly" the signup did NOT ask "how big your company is"?

    HP Elite x3 PC Tablets ? Elite Business Laptops and PC Tablets ? HP Official Site

    Traditionally, the "Enterprise sales cycle" goes into a summer lull after mid- July and really doesn't pick back up until mid-September = for maximum effect, HP should launch in June - don't know if manufacturing has begun yet as that would be a key indicator.

    HP "could be the Microsoft SAVIOR" - OR - HP will get scared off !!!

    I spent 15 years at HP and "I BELIEVE" that the HP Elite X3 *** WILL SELL TENS OF MILLIONS *** to businesses of all shapes and sizes !!!

    ESPECIALLY ENTERPRISE !!!

    Global smartphone sales figures published by Gartner show that Windows-based devices have a market share of just 0.7 percent. The latest figures cover the first quarter of 2016 and reveal that fewer than 2.4 million handsets with Microsoft's OS installed were sold.

    Microsoft's share of the mobile market plummets to below 1% as Android continues to rise

    I honestly believe the only shot HP has at moving tens of millions is by following the same inadvertent strategy they had with the last HP phone that had a "3" in the name.

    (I mean the firesale part, not the "stopped making them" part.)

    Well, I disagree as HP's "Enterprise sales channel" is enormous and worldwide. The "Enterprise feature set" alone will cause many large companies to purchase significant quantities to offset the BYOD effect which lead to a total loss of "corporate information and security". This is exactly how Blackberry penetrated the Enterprise while everyone else - including Microsoft - was asleep!

    But, even our small consultancy would opt for a "true Enterprise class phone"!

    Yes, and many OEMs like Dell, Samsung, etc. will be carefully watching how successful - or unsuccessful - HP becomes during the launch that appears to be coming soon.

    Yes, Samsung and many of the Android OEMs as well - but, the HP Elite X3 is "perfect" to start a revolution back towards Windows - or at least I personally hope - as then Microsoft's "Mobile FIRST, Cloud first" is truly dead. Satya Nadella sure appears to be far too smart to let that happen under his leadership!

    That was sooooo uncalled for. Vive Le Pre3!!!
