HP’s “consumer” Elite x3 counterpart might not be as beefy

HP’s “consumer” Elite x3 counterpart might not be as beefy

If you’ve had your hopes up that HP’s next Windows 10 Mobile will be as good as the Elite x3 though not as pricey, it’s perhaps time to temper those expectations. Don’t worry, it might not be as bad as the Moly X1. According to sources, HP’s consumer-level smartphone will instead be a mid-range device, sporting a processor from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 series. While not as powerful as an 820, it will still be enough to comply with Continuum’s requirements.

Sources: Microsoft and HP will launch consumer Windows 10 phone in 2017

Microsoft and HP are working on a consumer-tier Windows 10 Mobile phone, according to sources. This would follow the HP Elite X3, a phablet with a hefty price tag and features like Continuum and HP Workspace.

HP Z2 Mini packs workstation performance into a 2.3 x 8.5-inch package

HP has rolled out a new mini workstation that is to normal workstations what the Alienware Alpha is to normal gaming PCs. The new HP PC is called the Z2 Mini and the little beast packs workstation grade hardware into a package that measures only 2.3-inches x 8.5-inches. Despite the small stature of the computer, the device has the hardware inside that is needed to allow professionals to use power hungry CAD software and to support other compute-intensive industrial uses.

Here’s how the HP Elite x3 becomes a true PC, with a catch

Here’s how the HP Elite x3 becomes a true PC, with a catch

HP’s Elite x3 giant of a phablet is probably what Microsoft should have launched as the Windows 10 Mobile champion. Aside from having the best specs in any Windows 10 smartphone, it also embodies Microsoft’s dream of seamless computing anywhere and everywhere. While that is already possible via Windows Continuum and something like a Lap Dock, HP adds one more interesting piece to the puzzle: the HP Workspace service that lets you “run” full Windows desktops apps on the Elite x3.

HP Elite x3 “Lap Dock” is finally on pre-order

HP Elite x3 “Lap Dock” is finally on pre-order

The HP Elite x3 is undoubtedly the highest end Windows 10 Mobile smartphone so far. But as interesting as the giant smartphone is by itself, it is actually made more interesting thanks to one of its accessories. Not the desktop dock, which Microsoft and even Acer have. No, that distinction belongs to the HP Lap Dock, practically an empty laptop or portable monitor, keyboard, and trackpad in one, which turns the Elite x3 into a true portable computer, also thanks to the soon to be better Continuum for Mobile.

HP says it will restore 3rd party ink cartridge functionality

Few things in the world of technology anger people more than ink cartridges for printers. We have all been trying to print a document only to have the printer stop and force you to replace the cartridge to keep printing. Often that happens well before any print issues like streaks or faded color happens. HP really got itself into the muck with a firmware that bricked some third party ink cartridges recently and is now asking forgiveness of its customers.

HP printer firmware snuck in failure date for 3rd-party cartridges

Expiring messages on instant messaging services is one thing. But an undisclosed “expiring” dates on printers using unofficial ink cartridges? Not that usual. And yet, that is practically what HP is admitting to after it has been accused of sneaking in a pre-programmed failure date for printers that were using non-blessed, third party ink cartridges. And that happened only after thousands have already reported that their printers suddenly started showing cartridge error messages, all on the same date: September 13.
