Reliance Jio effect: Airtel unveils Rs 249 pack; offers 2GB data per day, unlimited calling for 28 days

Well, laptops with built-in cellular connectivity options would actually be appealing to a lot many, because with the current laptops, we have to either plug-in a 3G/4G dongle or connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot to get Internet connectivity on the laptop. The laptop will run on windows 10 operating system which will make the device even more faster. The report says that Jio is in talks with Qualcomm to bring laptops running Windows 10 OS and will pack integrated SIM cards for cellular connectivity in India.

"...we have talked to Jio". A senior Qualcomm officer was quoted by ET saying Jio could take the device and bundle it with data and content. Qualcomm is already working with Jio and Reliance Retail to bring out a 4G feature phone.

Such connected laptops have slowly begun emerging over the past few months from brands like HP, Asus, and Lenovo. While the first set of devices powered by Snapdragon 835 have started hitting the USA, these products are yet to arrive in emerging markets like India. Besides, Nunes said that there are now 14 operators that have extended their support for this new category, including the US' Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and major carriers in Germany, Italy, the UK, France, and Australia.

With workplaces encouraging employees to bring their own devices and changing scenario where people work from remote place, a connected PC stands to gain significant traction and its success depends on operators with vast network and connectivity solutions.
