    Yeah the ATIV SE's AMOLED combined with Win Mobile's almost entirely flat black UI led to purely incredible battery life.

    I have to keep telling myself "patience grasshopper" to wait, be nice if we had a concrete date on hand so we are not fumbling in the dark. I guess the fact that we know it is coming is good enough, just the wait is getting hard since we know it is close by...

    Kind of have a bad feeling it won't arrive until after Oct. 31. That is when the sale on the GSM unlocked model/bundle ends. This would put it at full retail, which Kevin has hinted it would be sold at.
    I received an email from Kevin last night.
    He stated, "It should be listed most any day via Microsoft.Com/store."
    Should be any day now!

    There was a camera comparo here a few years ago between the SE, Icon and the M8. I think it was Rubino who authored it and the results were interesting.

    I'm interested in how this will spin out. The other distributor delisted 1PK93AA over the weekend. However, 1PK92AA is still listed at both, but with no ETA or quantities ordered.

    One of the distributors, Ingram Micro, ships out of the same warehouse as Provantage. I'm not quite sure about their relationship, but I believe Provantage is their consumer department.

    I used the Ative on Windows 10 mobile for a while and it did real well. I honestly have been looking for another lately cheap online, but have not found one yet. Just to have around and use from time to time...The one I had the sim slot went bad, and I had to replace it. It is a well built device and like mentioned the battery did well on it. SD card slot too. The screen was one of the best at the time being a Sammy built AMOLED lit one.
    I'm still on my ATIV SE which has Windows 10 on it thanks to a registry hack which allowed it to download the latest builds through Insider Preview. However, I've been stuck on 15063.251 since about April of this year. Things were actually running pretty smoothly on it up until the past two months. The random reboots, app crashes, and lagginess in starting certain apps are starting to wear on me. But I do love the size and one-handedness of the device.

    Kevin started that 1PK92AA#ABA is the correct SKU for the Verizon phone.

    There is something going on with that build. I could never get it to load on my Acer Primo even though it ran perfectly on AU. How did the Ativ run on 14393?

    I wish I could remember! haha. The builds were coming so fast and furious at one point, I didn't really keep tally of what I was on. I was just happy to get updates. If I had to guess, it ran smoothly, as it did for most of the time I've had it on Windows 10 Mobile.

    I love how it's just a blurb, and not even a full throated one at that.

    "HP Elite x3 Verizon devices as still in support with the Fall Creators Update, but both of these devices aren't actually on sale. Perhaps new Windows phones (for the enterprise) are in-bound after all."

    We've done more research on it than they have, haha!

    Windows Central apparently doesn't consider either the Verizon certification or the release window/distribution partner information newsworthy: https://twitter.com/zacbowden/status/920680297838071808

    No they don't. And a senior editor saying there hasn't been any new news? This coming from a site that has a writer who has been writing the same mostly repetitious editorials about one quote the MS CEO said about mobile devices 9 months ago.

    Based on the Senior Editor's profile photo, I now have visual proof this site is run by 13-year-olds.

    Just a little egg on face. It would go well with a side dish of crow.

    We have been in contact with HP and will report on this topic once the device becomes available. We have already written about it coming to Verizon. We don't need to keep writing about that. Now, can you guys please act a little more your age? Thank you.

    No, and that's why we haven't reported on it. You guys keep saying HP told you September, then mid-October. Is the device here yet? No. We want to report on accurate information. When it's on the front page, you'll know :)

    Geez Zac, who peed in your corn flakes this morning? Oh, well maybe that was me. My apologies for going personal on the age thing, it was uncalled for. But as for "already written about it coming to Verizon", my argument was (and still is) your coverage of it seems downright invisible compared to some of the other news stories and articles being posted to the main page. I know I could pull up at least 2 or 3 articles in recent months about Lumia phones that were nixed and never saw the light of day (hell, even a review was done on one.) However, outside of the news tidbit in July where it was posted as a question / possibility "May be Coming to Verizon", there has been zilch coverage of the the HP documentation being updated on their site or Verizon posting a page on their OpenDev site saying the HP Elite X3 is going to be compatible to the network (The site went live well over a month ago and apparently other readers said they sent info to the editors.) Hell, even the last Fall Creators story about W10M says "Perhaps" a CDMA version is inbound for Verizon. Instead there are a ton more articles about how to switch to Android. That's my qualm. Just that it's being very under reported. I get that it may not be a big deal to most people at this stage of the W10M game, but it's still a device plenty of others are looking forward to in the Windows world. Also, being that you guys cover the progress of countless other pieces of unreleased Windows Hardware/software ad nausea, you'd think this one would get a least a little more attention since a new Windows phone on the Verizon network, even at this point in time, is a pretty big deal.

    Again, I don't mind being told to "act my age", based on my uncalled for insult. However, based on all the facts above, I don't appreciate being told I'm a liar about your lackluster coverage of a news story. If I had a nickel for all the repetitive posts on WindowsCentral.com covering every nuanced bit of info about the same piece of hardware or software as it travels through it's development cycle, I could have retired several years ago ;)

    That said, I won't be visiting the main home page any more to read "news" or articles. I'll use a different site. But I'm sure you were going to suggest I do that anyway. So I saved you some time :)

    Have a great day!

    While I am a Windows/Lumia fan on Verizon, I am no longer looking forward to this. My hope was that the X3 would be a different model on Verizon, with an upgraded camera, and this does not appear to be the case (so far, the Icon's camera still destroys X3's). In addition, with microshaft's announcements about dropping Groove and offering minimal Windows 10 Mobile life support, it is tough to justify paying $600 for a new device.

    To be fair, WC did report quite a bit about the McLaren. Maybe you didn't per se, but "we" did.

    This one still has a chance albeit a small one.

    Maybe in a year we will see a report on the HP devices that WOULD have been. Seems they had plans, but those plans were spoiled obviously.
