Windows 10 on ARM project is a just beginning, a lot more to
come, Microsoft said in a statement. While the
early reviews of the Always Connected PCs powered by
Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 on ARM are not as good as
expected, the company says that the Always Connected PCs
reputation has nothing to do with Windows 10 on ARM project.
Microsoft has unveiled the first Windows 10 on ARM devices from
the partners; HP, Lenovo and Asus, but the reviews are not
good. The battery backup of such a device is undoubtedly
amazing but the performance is not as good as Intel processors.
What you see in the Always Connected PCs and Windows 10 on ARM
project is the beginning, a lot more to come, the firm says.
You shouldn’t call Always Connected PCs initiative a flop just
because the Qualcomm powered PCs with Windows 10 failed to meet
your needs. With more partners, better hardware and software,
the Always Connected PCs will be successful. All of these
laptops are powered by Qualcomm’s processors, but that won’t be
the case in the future as
Samsung might a such a device with its own processor.
“We don’t equate Always Connected PC with Qualcomm. We’re about
choice in the ecosystem and working across our partners,”
Microsoft Windows general manager Erin Chapple was quoted
Windows 10 on ARM with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845
processor will launch this fall and it would run on an
optimized version of Windows 10 operating system. In other
words, Qualcomm will continue to be part of Always Connected
PCs but more partners will join Microsoft’s initial as well.
“We also have our Surface Pro LTE, which we consider our first
Always Connected PC,” Erin Chapple added. Speaking of the
performance, Erin Chapple added says that “You will see
Always Connected PCs performance improvements between the Fall
Creators Update and the Redstone 4 updates that we’ve been
delivering” Chapple was quoted as saying.
The Windows 10 Redstone 4 will improve the performance of
Always Connected PC and new features are expected in the future
release. Microsoft is fully committed to Always Connected
PCs and the company has already worked with the PC makers such
as HP, Lenovo, and ASUS to push the new initiative.
Microsoft’s Surface Pro (2017) LTE is its own solution and
similar devices will be launched this fall. What do you think
