So many different products are unveiled during the ongoing MWC. HP has also unveiled one of its product. HP unveiled the Elite x3 phablet which is powered by Windows 10.

The Elite x3 comes with HP Workspace which can virtualize PC environment on the device and lets users access x86 applications, whereas, the HP Desk Dock replicates full desktop experience and supports external monitor, two USB-A and USB-C connections along with wired Ethernet. The device also has support for Windows Continuum which lets you transit between multiple screens with ease and continue working as if working on a traditional workspace.
