HP Presents Elite x3 Windows Phone

HP Presents Elite x3 Windows Phone

HP launches what it describes as "one device that's every device" at MWC 2015-- the Elite x3, a business-focused Windows 10-powered smartphone able to turn into either a PC or laptop via appropriate accessories.

As one might (rightly) assume the Elite x3 makes heavy use of Continuum, the Windows 10 feature providing users with a PC-style experience on a smartphone through connection of a larger display, keyboard and mouse. Thus HP provides a pair of optional accessories for such purposes, the Desk Dock and the Mobile Extender.

The Desk Dock is simple enough, being a dock providing all the necessary ports (x2 USB, x1 USB-C, x1 DisplayPort, x1 ethernet) to transform the Elite x3 into a desktop PC. Meanwhile the confusingly named Mobile Extender actually is a notebook of sorts complete with 48Wh battery, 12.5-inch display, full-size keyboard and trackpad one can wirelessly pair with the smartphone.

EU Presents 5G Action Plan

The European Union shows commitment towards faster mobile networks at MWC 2016 as it announces an action plan for "essential" 5G infrastructure within the continent before companies start offering related products and services by 2020.

The action plan builds on previous EU investments in 5G research-- to be worth €700 million by 2020-- and earlier proposals for the coordination of 700MHz band use. The 700MHz offers higher-speed and higher-quality broadband while covering wider areas, thus allowing the EU to catch up with mobile broadband leaders such as S. Korea and the US.

Further work on the spectrum coordination should take place during the Q3 2016 EU telecom rules review.

ARM Claims

ARM announces a successor to the Cortex-A5 and A7 mobile processors-- the Cortex-A35, a 64-bit processor the company says is designed for mobile and embedded applications, including smartwatches.

The Cortex-A35 features big.LITTLE configurability, supports 32- and 64-bit capabilities and is 25% smaller than the Cortex-A53. It also consumes less power (90mW per core according to ARM) while featuring enhancements such as a redesigned instruction fetch unit, new in-order 8-stage pipeline and improved NEON floating-point performance, making it ideal for next generation low-cost devices.
