The HP ELITE EX 3 is now available to buy in Ireland.. Finally some might say but when you see the price you might change your mind pretty quick at the sim free price its looking for its Apple territory pricing,The good thing be it small you are not tied to any network…

The device has had a pretty mixed response overall when it comes to the camera and as mentioned the price.. With Windows Phone dying year on year its become a niche market for the platform and with the lack of apps and updates users have jumped ship to alternative operating systems be it Android or iOS. Not to be bashful overall it is probably one of the best looking devices running Windows 10 and its build quality its top notch compared to the likes of the Lumia 950/950XL which was cheap looking and dropped quite a bar to Lumia of old.. This device is a powerhouse for those who want to be productive on the go and aimed at the business user we might see them pick it up…

Experience the power and productivity of a PC, the versatility of a tablet, and premium smartphone capabilities of your hand with the HP Elite x3, HP’s first built for business 3-in-1 device. It’s designed to deliver simple and seamless access to your people, apps, and data.

The cost..  €894.95 including VAT PLUS Shipping costs.. TOTAL PRICE €907.15

You can now pick up the device from   if you are interested in it, As it stands there is 25 in stock and I dont see that stock diminishing anytime soon.. Given it is a nice looking device with decent specs it will be for the hardcore fan or perhaps the entrenched user but as for general Windows Phone fans  or consumer I can t see then shell out this much for a phone that lacks apps and updates.. It needs to be much cheaper to gain interest….There is also accessories on sale if you want to purchase those to and again they are not cheap.
