Earlier last month, Microsoft announced five carriers which will support the always-connected PCs. In a recent announcement, Qualcomm revealed nine more major carriers which will support Microsoft’s Windows for ARM mobile PC initiative.
Earlier last month, Microsoft revealed that EE, Telecom Italia, Sprint, Verizon, and China Telecom will support the feature. The latest announcement brings the number to 14 as Qualcomm added Telstra, CMCC (China Mobile Communications Corporation), Transatel, Deutsche Telekom, Cubic, Telefónica, Swisscom, T-Mobile, and AT&T to the list.
Talking about the latest addition, matt Barlow, Corporate Vice President, Windows and Devices, Microsoft said, “The Always Connected PC combines the connectivity and the simplicity of the smartphone with the power and creative capability of the Windows 10 PC, transforming how we work and play. In collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies and with the support of these mobile operators, consumers will be able to enjoy up to gigabit 4G/LTE connectivity and stay connected to the things that are most important to them.”
Earlier last month, Microsoft and its partners announced a number of Always-Connected PCs during CES. However, we will have to wait until spring to get our hands on the PCs powered by ARM processors.
