The Windows Mobile platform has come a long historical path — from one of the most popular OS for smart phones to operating system, whose development was abandoned by Microsoft. And now, after the announcement of the cease-platform development, sales reappeared smartphone running the operating system Windows 10 Mobile. What can it mean?

Last week, Microsoft began selling a version of the HP Elite x3 for the network operator Verizon. It should be noted that the device went on sale after months of rumors about him and his likely prospects. Initially, he made his debut in 2016. HP Elite x3 — smartphone high-end class running the operating system Windows 10 Mobile platform, which the software giant no longer develops. More "novelty" probably final an entire era — the era of Windows mobile, — was considered by Florin (Florin T.) published on the resource phonearena.com article with reference to Windows Central.

The version of the HP Elite x3 for Verizon only on the Microsoft web site. Its price was lower at 599 USD. Package included Desk Dock. Although Microsoft intended Elite x3 for business consumers, other users can also purchase a device that is based on is probably going to past the mobile platform.

HP Elite x3 — a great waterproof phone with 5.96-inch WQHD AMOLED-display, whose resolution is 1440 x 2560 pixels. It found a use iris scanner and a fingerprint scanner. Considering the phone has a Snapdragon 820 chipset, which was the flagship chip of last year. Have device is the quality that many users expect from mobile devices — stereo speakers. They supports two SIM cards. RAM HP Elite x3 is 4 gigabytes. Capacity built-in hard drive of the considered smartphone — 64 GB. Additionally, the device supports memory cards microSD. The device is equipped with fairly "roomy" battery, which capacity is 4150 mAh, which, of course, is also an important benefit of the HP Elite x3 for those users who would prefer to take the time to charge the smartphone less often. However, the use of such a capacious battery is a very logical solution for a device with a huge screen and a powerful chipset.

HP Elite x3 is definitely an interesting smartphone, and HP, which created it, has done a lot of work. However, given that the Windows Mobile operating system more irrelevant even for the software giant Microsoft, and the presence on the market of many similar smartphones, Elite x3 probably will not become a popular device. It is important as the contact with the history of high technology.

Although Windows Mobile is almost in the past, this does not mean that Microsoft is no longer aiming to bring its operating system for mobile hardware platforms. In 2018, the debut of a new category of devices — the Snapdragon PC, which will be combined the best characteristic of smart phones and personal computers, and possessing, in comparison with usual laptops, an important advantage. These previously considered devices are likely to be a further development of the use of popular computer operating systems from the software giant Microsoft in devices with more energy-efficient mobile chipsets. After all, modern hardware platform designed primarily for smartphones, is already quite efficient and in order that they could based computers.
