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 as saying.
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 about the Windows 10 on ARM and Always Connected PCs? Let us know in the comments below.
