Windows on ARMAt its Snapdragon Technology Summit in Hawaii today, Qualcomm brought its partners onstage to announce the first Snapdragon 835-powered Windows 10 PCs. Alongside the ASUS NovaGo, HP unveiled the Envy x2. I got to spend some time with the latter, and it's an interesting device.

Windows on ARM is part of the Always Connected PC initiative by Microsoft, which is all about PCs that are always connected to the internet via cellular connectivity. Some, like the company's own Surface Pro, use Intel chips, but as of right now, they all use Qualcomm's Snapdragon X16 modem, which can provide LTE speeds of up to 1Gbps.
