Mobile World Congress is the world’s largest mobile industry gathering, drawing a crowd of 100,000 from 204 countries to Barcelona to unveil the latest technology and trends.
At MWC 2017, HP was excited to showcase our next-generation mobile devices and how they’re helping transform business productivity for the workplace of the future. We're in the middle of a mobility revolution and the office is changing in every conceivable way, from physical space to the time we spend there and how we attend meetings.
And Day One certainly didn’t disappoint. Here’s a first-day recap of our new device launches that drive productivity and mobility on the move like never before.
HP launches the versatile new HP Pro x2 612 G2
Work securely from wherever you want with our powerful, durable and versatile new detachable 2-in-1 device that comes with the latest 7th generation Intel processors, robust construction and watertight security features. Perfect for mobile professionals looking for an enterprise device for the office or on the go. And with security top of mind at this year’s congress – you can be confident that the HP Pro x2 612 G2 comes with some of the world’s most advanced security technology.
Key features include: HP SureStart Gen3, MIL_STD 810g testing, multiple usage, fast-charging and 11-hour battery life. The HP Pro x2 comes with a range of accessories and gadgets that facilitate portable productivity. For example, the HP Active Wacom Pen with App Launch that lets you draw straight onto the screen for quick note taking or sketches. Or the HP Pro x2 612 G2 Rugged Case that provides extra protection for customers in extreme work environments with a 360-degree rotating strap. Engadget writes that this powerful device will delight business users.
New mobile workflow solutions with HP Elite x3
HP is thrilled to unveil the latest instalment of our breakthrough Elite x3 platform series, with our Mobile Scanning and Mobile Retail Solutions, designed to mobilise healthcare, field and retail workers. With an integrated barcode scanner to check prices, access inventory and CRM data on the go, the HP Elite x3 extensions help to seamlessly communicate the back and front offices. And when workers aren’t on the move, they connect to a display, mouse and keyword for a desktop experience.
Turn your device into a desktop with HP Elite USB-C™
When you need a desktop display, this handy portable dock helps to create one and can connect to multiple displays, while simultaneously charging your devices.
Travel without losing connecting with HP USB-C™
When you travel, it’s easy to get caught short when it comes to ports. That is, until now. With the HP USB-C™ Travel Hub, you have access to additional peripheral ports on the move. The hub also delivers pass-through connectivity for displays, USB devices and charging for the HP Pro x2, HP Elite x2 or the HP Elite x3.
Today, work is touted as what we do, rather than where we go. Mobile working can make your organization more efficient, empower your workforce and attract top talent. So, how can you, as an IT professional embrace business mobility and help build this future?
