Microsoft and Qualcomm are working on bringing the full version of Windows 10 on devices with ARM chips, and the two companies have already presented a demo highlighting the power of this mix, which can even handle demanding apps like Photoshop.
But at the MWC tech conference in Barcelona, Qualcomm discussed the partnership with Microsoft in detail, explaining that the two are trying to avoid the Windows RT disaster by enabling full Win32 apps.
“The goal is to get something credible out, show people why it’s different from RT. Show that it’s Windows 10—there isn’t a second version of Windows 10,” Keith Kressin, senior vice president of product management at Qualcomm Technologies, was quoted as saying.
