If you were hoping to get your hands on HP's Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered Envy x2 early in March, it looks like you'll be waiting a little longer. Despite going up for preorder late last month with an estimated March 9 shipping date, HP has now pushed the shipping date back to March 23 at its online store.
Though it will be shipping a little bit later than originally estimated, the Envy x2 is still up for preorder at $999.99. For the money, the Envy x2 packs 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 12.3-inch 1920x1280 display. The overall package resembles Microsoft's Surface Pro, with a similar detachable keyboard and kickstand on board. HP also includes a stylus, so you can begin marking up documents right out of the box.
What makes the Envy x2 stand out from the pack, however, is that it's one of the first Windows 10 devices powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 platform. That should bring a big boost to battery life compared to similar Intel machines – HP is estimating up to 22 hours – along with instant-on and a persistent LTE connection.
Qualcomm recently announced that a number of major mobile carriers around the world will support Always Connected PCs on their LTE networks. Amazon, the Microsoft Store, and several regional retailers are also signed up to stock Always Connected PCs this quarter.
If you're on the fence, Windows Central will be reviewing the HP Envy x2 as soon as we get our hands on one. It's also worth noting that the ASUS NovaGo, another Always Connected PC, is expected to arrive soon as well. Otherwise, you can preorder the Envy x2 from HP's online store now for $999.99.
