Qualcomm confirms the arrival of ARM powered Windows 10 laptops

Qualcomm hints Snapdragon PCs are coming

Microsoft has attempted ARM-based PCs in the past with its Windows RT (standing for "regrettable tablet"?) lineup, but this time round traditional Windows Programs will be supported as well as the universal app type. This is the huge step for both companies.

Apparently Qualcomm and Microsoft are flat out getting ARM-based Windows 10 PCs to work. It will take design cues from smartphones and is being called a cellular PC by Qualcomm and Microsoft. Windows 10 on ARM device will surely start a new era of computing. But.? But today, Qualcomm's CEO finally gave some more information about it. However, the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 platform that powers Samsung's phone will also power Windows 10 devices later this year.

"Our Snapdragon 835 is expanding into mobile PC designs running Windows 10, which are scheduled to launch in the fourth calendar quarter this year", Mollenkopf said, according to a SeekingAlpha transcript.

UC Berkeley flip-flops on Ann Coulter, proposes May date
But Coulter remained defiant and proclaimed over social media that she still intends to show up for the original timeslot. She said she had already spent money to hold the event on the original April 27 date and is not available May 2.

Qualcomm, in the earnings call, said that Apple suppliers - which acquire the licenses on behalf of the iPhone maker - owe about US$1 billion in licensing fees.

In a demo last December, Microsoft showed a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 running Windows 10 without any appreciable lag. During the initial announcement of Windows 10 on ARM processors, Microsoft stated that the company plans on releasing the first Windows 10 PCs powered by Qualcomm's ARM processors in 2017. Lenovo is reportedly working on a device, and there's a good chance we'll see a few more at Microsoft's Build conference in Seattle. Although, OEMs will gradually take advantage of new processor and will launch new devices with Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. The more advanced its A-series chip get, the more likely it is to see such devices - don't get too excited about Macs running on A11 chips just yet.

The cellular PC could also have a long battery life, considering Snapdragon 835 was designed for smartphones. Now this week thanks to some investigating by the folks over at Bleeping Computer, we now know that retail Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 licenses can still be used to activate Windows 10 when performing a fresh install, even after the recent Creators Update.
