After the successful release of HP’s Elite x3 Windows 10 Mobile phones, Microsoft is reportedly expanding its availability. On 26th September, the device hit Microsoft’s online US stores, the beginning of a 100-plus US retails rollout starting October 10th.

In a report from PCMag, Peter Han, Vice President of OEM Worldwide Marketing at Microsoft, announced the release and since then, there have been several reports that the phone is already available in a few Microsoft Stores already.

This is yet another chapter in the X3 saga. The shipping of the device hit a road back in mid-September, afterwards delayed till mid-October. Recent rumours state it will ship in 3-7 business days. Even if this one proves to be true, it is only the story of US sales — UK sales are still experiencing problems.

Thanks to the premium HP Workspace service which provides support for Citrix app-virtualization and enables business consumers to run legacy Windows apps in Continuum mode, the Elite x3 has been promoted by HP as a 3-in-1 business dedicated smartphone. Other miscellaneous features includeBitlocker 128-bit encryption, HP’s Secure Boot malware prevention and Intune MDM and Reset protection.

Windows phone fanatics may find the smartphone’s premium specifications fascinating: It comes with Snapdragon 820 chipset powered by an Intel Core i3, sports a 5.96-inch 2560×1440 AMOLED display, has a fingerprint sensor and is bundled with accessories such as the Desk Dock and the Lap Dock. Moreover, PCMag emphasised that it also comes with a headphone jack.

Even if we consider the Desk Dock a blessing bonus, the $799 price tag is still not much more affordable than Apple’s iPhone or other premium Android flagships.
