Talk about beating a dead horse. The HP Elite x3 is practically what the Surface Phone should have been, at least in terms of features and specs. It wasn’t perfect but it definitely deserved a follow-up. HP, however, says that will never come to pass, thanks to Microsoft reversing directions and practically abandoning Windows 10 Mobile. Imagine people’s surprise, then, when HP put the Elite x3 up for sale again, this time compatible with Verizon’s network, a good year after the device was launched.
