HP is yet to confirm the date of its availability and the pricing.

The choice by HP to release a Windows 10 Mobile smartphone is quite thought provoking considering the extremely low market share held by the Microsoft-owned operating system.

It will be interesting to see how the Elite X3 once it hits the market.
