    After spending plenty of time with HP's Elite X3 Windows Phone, it's hard not to be impressed by the company's ambition. It's just too bad the execution isn't so great. The Elite X3 builds on Microsoft's Continuum feature, which gives phones pseudo-desktop interfaces on larger monitors, with Workspace, a virtual environment that lets you run full Windows apps. Together with a Desk Dock and Lap Dock, HP intends for the X3 to serve as both a laptop and desktop replacement. But while Workspace is a decent fix for Continuum's issues, I don't think it's enough to make the X3 a viable option for most workers.
