How HP Workspace Delivers x86 Apps On Elite x3 Windows 10 Mobile Device

HP Workspace Demo

At MWC this week, HP announced Elite x3 Windows 10 mobile phablet that bridges laptop and desktop use cases from a single computing device while enabling users to run key productivity apps across these different experiences seamlessly. While Continuum will allow Windows 10 specific apps to work full screen on large displays, enterprise users will need access to their line of business apps which are based on x86 platform.

To solve this problem, HP is launching HP Workspace, an app catalog designed by HP to easily enable access to virtualized apps. HP Workspace on the Elite x3 creates a virtual PC, giving users access to company curated catalogs of x86 apps via a virtualized solution. Basically, think HP Workspace as a Remote Desktop Client which can access a PC which runs x86 apps. HP Workspace will use Citrix app-virtualization or Azure RemoteApp  to deliver these x86 apps. HP Workspace is not ready for Windows 10 Mobile, but a software update planned in a future release will enable it. Also, HP Workspace Subscription is required to access this service.
