9. HP's Elite x3 Device Shatters Smartphone Limitations
Partners hailed HP Inc.'s new Elite x3 Windows 10 device for once and for all making it possible for business customers to access everything they need on a single handheld product – including Windows legacy applications – and eliminating the need to switch between smartphones, laptops and desktops.
"This is smarter than a smartphone," exclaimed Joe Hemani, founder and sole owner of Westcoast, a $3 billion United Kingdom distributor that's betting big on the Elite x3. "HP has leapfrogged everyone in the mobile market by giving you the ability to have anything and everything you need when you are away from your office. You no longer need to tap into your legacy systems with another device like a laptop or desktop, and - by the way - you can use it to call your grandmother!"
By leveraging Qualcomm Inc.'s most powerful Snapdragon processor and Microsoft's Continuum technology in Windows 10, HP has opened the door for partners to modernize the tens of thousands of Windows apps that have been unavailable on smartphones up until now, said Hemani.
Partners credited the HP Inc. commercial mobility team, led by Vice President and General Manager Michael Park, with pushing the technology barrier beyond all limits to deliver a new standard for commercial mobility.
