Pre-orders for the 5.96-inch "superphone" began in late August, with the U.S. site charging $799 and the Canadian store pricing the phone at $999. Both sites sold the HP Elite x3 with the Desk Dock accessory. The first pre-order shipments from those souces began last week, but the Microsoft Store sites later changed the delivery dates for future orders to Sept. 26. This is the second time that the sites are showing that the HP Elite x3 is out of stock before the new ship date arrives.
HP.com's U.S. site began taking orders for the Elite x3 on Sept. 5, but quickly ran out of stock just two days later. The site is still not taking new orders for the smartphone.
