In December, Microsoft and Qualcomm announced a partnership to launch a new generation of "cellular PCs" with ARM-based processors, running the full version of Windows 10. They said that these new devices would be "able to run "x86 Win32 and universal Windows apps, including Photoshop, Microsoft Office, and popular Windows games."
Today, at the Computex 2017 industry expo, the two companies made a further announcement about their plans for the "new category of Always Connected PCs".
Microsoft revealed that ASUS, HP and Lenovo will be the first manufacturers to launch Always Connected Windows 10 devices built on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 'Mobile PC Platform'. "These new devices will feature Windows, always-on LTE connectivity and great battery life," Microsoft said.
