We all try to forget about the ill-fated Windows RT devices. I hope you didn’t buy one.
At the recent Microsoft Windows Hardware Engineering Community (WinHEC) event in Shenzhen, China Qualcomm announced Windows 10 devices powered by their Snapdragon processors.
They promised three big capabilities:
- The screen turns on “instantly”
- LTE is built right in
- The battery can last for days
This isn’t another Windows RT variant. Windows 10 on ARM will support Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps and Win32 apps in the Windows Store, as well as existing Win32 apps.
That pretty much means everything.
HP, Asus, and Lenovo have already announced Windows 10 devices running on Snapdragon processors.
This is kinda like Day 1 of the new generation of Windows-based machines.
Here we go!
