We know that Qualcomm and Microsoft had announced at WinHEC about bringing full Windows 10 support on to Qualcomm’s ARM based processors the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835.While at last week’s Computex 2017 announcement Qualcomm said to have partnered with ASUS, HP, and Lenovo to bring the first wave of ARM-based Windows PCs running full Windows 10. Yesterday we reported that Intel would blocking Microsoft and Qualcomm‘s path in supporting legacy Windows apps on ARM based processors by blocking their x86 emulation part which is responsible for the whole initiative of Windows on ARM.
Microsoft has also released their statement while reassuring everyone about the initiative and reporting that everything is still on track. Microsoft says that customers want Always Connected PCs they are confident in their ability to bring these devices to market while working with a wide range of partners. These devices are expected to be great at productivity at a much better price and at the same time larger battery power.
Microsoft’s has failed to address the newly raised issue in their statements of IP concerns by Intel. It looks like Microsoft are ignoring this issue in public statements but we are sure Microsoft is aware about this. We would hope Microsoft will quietly solve the issue.
