One of the big new things heading to the market this year are ARM devices capable of running Windows 10. As I wrote half a year ago, this is not the rebirth of Windows RT but a version of Windows 10 that can run x86 applications on ARM-based devices.
It's still unknown when we can expect the first "WinARM" devices but Qualcomm confirmed at Computex that ASUS, HP and Lenovo will be the first to market Windows 10 devices with its Snapdragon 835 SoC. These new systems will be branded as "Always Connected PCs" thanks to their LTE connectivity.
While both Qualcomm and Microsoft were vague on precisely when the first Windows 10 on ARM devices would be reaching the market, the pair have jointly announced the first partners - meaning a launch is likely just around the corner. Speaking during Computex 2017, Qualcomm confirmed it had teamed up with Asus, HP, and Lenovo on the production of convertible devices running Windows 10 on its Snapdragon 835 system-on-chip (SoC). Each will also include Long Term Evolution (LTE) cellular connectivity, provided via the X16 LTE modem built into the Snapdragon 835 as standard.
