PCWorld talked with HP’s mobility head Michael Park about how some Universal Windows Apps made for the HoloLens could be usable on the new phone some time down the developmental roadmap.
While the Elite x3 has some intense silicon behind it, it does not have special camera and depth-sensing hardware built onto it. In all likelihood, we’ll have to see a head- or arm-mounted peripheral come out — and if that’s the case, we’ll have to see whether it will be compatible with other Windows 10 Mobile phones.
Whatever the case, HP is committed for the time being to serving mobility products to its enterprise customers.
Whether it can and will with a shrinking mobile platform may depend more on what Microsoft is willing to do with it than HP.
