Home » The first HP, Lenovo and ASUS cellular PCs will arrive later this year

ASUS, Lenovo, and HP are all aiming to be the first computer companies to release cellular PCs by the end of this year, according to Microsoft and Qualcomm’s announcement at Computex. The devices in development would feature the Snapdragon 835 and would be powered by Windows 10 on ARM so that they’re always connected.

Cellular PC features

PC manufacturers can create brand new machines by combining the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 with the X16 LTE modem and Windows 10 for devices that feature outstanding battery life, smaller form factors, and instant-on capabilities.

Executive vice president of Qualcomm Technologies Cristiano Amon spoke about the motivation behind this collaboration, stating that the legacy computing model is no longer suited for the modern consumer who isn’t satisfied with heavy, cabled laptops anymore.

These consumers are frustrated by a large number of accessories, so the Snapdragon Mobile PC Platform would enable Windows 10 hardware makers to develop next-gen device form factors which will address this frustration. In addition, these devices will be able to deliver amazing creation experiences with up to “gigabit-class LTE connectivity.”

These new hypermobile devices will feature 2×2 802.11 ac MU-MIMO for optimal connectivity and download speeds up to 1GBps. And in the end, the merger of cellular mobile devices with the power of Windows 10, inking, UWP for apps, Windows Hello and Cortana for AI could rival any smartphone this year.

2017 will turn out to be a very interesting year considering all the changes that come alongside this new cellular PC era.
