Qualcomm introduces Always Connected PC

HP ENVY x2 Announced with Snapdragon 835 and 20 Hours of Battery Backup

It's part of a broader Always Connected PC initiative, introducing devices - both with Intel and Qualcomm chips - that have cellular connectivity.

Make no mistake - Windows 10 on the ARM is not only aimed at consumers but Microsoft also expects that it can transform how people work.

Both companies will be announcing pricing, mobile carrier details, and exact availability closer to Spring 2018.

The Asus NovaGo will start at $600 for the version with 4GB RAM/64GB of storage, or $800 for the full-fat 8GB/256GB version.

The ENVY x2 is one of a wave of new Qualcomm-powered Windows devices set to hit the market. We are again at the beginning of another major technology shift: the ability to be connected anytime, anywhere with Always Connected PCs that are instantly on, always connected with incredible battery life.

Like the ASUS NovaGo, the HP ENVY x2 will run Windows 10 on Snapdragon. Always Connected PCs are for those who want the simplicity and connectivity of a phone, blended with the power of a PC, said Matt Barlow, Corporate Vice President of Windows Marketing.

Of course, devices with Windows 10 S will be limited to just Windows Store apps, but like the Surface Laptop those devices can unlock Windows 10 Pro in less than two-minutes at any time. Always Connected is the branding for PCs that include built-in gigabit LTE and wifi; long battery life (in ARM devices' case, allegedly multiple days without a recharge); run Windows 10; and be thin, light and fanless. There'll be up to 20 hours of battery life and up to 700 hours of standby. Matt Barlow, Microsoft Corporate Vice President of Windows and Devices told me, however, that Windows 10 on ARM is completely recompiled for Qualcomm's hardware, and numerous apps - including an optimized version of Office 365 - are very responsive and quick. Nonetheless, the idea that I can carry a PC and tablet that is as thin as a magazine around with me while on 4G LTE and getting a week's worth of active battery life is intriguing. Microsoft also sees security advantages from being able to bypass WIFI networks, which are open to man in the middle attacks. Using Windows 10 Pro lets customers run older Windows apps, which will run in an emulation layer.
