Qualcomm and Microsoft bring on Always Connected PCs with ASUS NovaGo

HP ENVY x2 Announced with Snapdragon 835 and 20 Hours of Battery Backup

Qualcomm today (Dec. 5) took the wraps off the Snapdragon 845, its next mobile platform that will no doubt power the next batch of flagship Android smartphones coming our way in 2018.

The HP Envy x2 will be available in spring next year, while no timeframe has been shared for the ASUS NovaGo yet.

At the Snapdragon Summit in Maui, Hawaii, Qualcomm announced a new "Always Connected PC" in partnership with Microsoft.

AMD did not announce any specific products, but it did say that it has infused Qualcomm's Snapdragon 4G LTE modem into their Ryzen Mobile reference test platform.

The architecture of Qualcomm's Snapdragon processors is fundamentally much more efficient than the x86 and x64 processor architectures that have traditionally powered Windows devices. Just that the NovaGo is running a mobile processor does not put the device into isolation.

The infant's surgery had been scheduled for November, but was postponed as a precaution after the family came down with colds. Meanwhile, Kimmel has once again invited some "celebrity Samaritans" to replace him as host of Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week.

What's more, with the lofty promise of a 20 hour battery life and the fact that it's actually lighter than an iPad Pro, this could well be the Windows 10 tablet to rival - and potentially replace - Apple's ever-popular iPad.

Thankfully though, the HP Envy x2 has alleviated all of our concerns with its impeccably thin and ambitiously premium design.

The HP Envy x2 is otherwise as well specced as any Intel-powered Windows machine with as little as 4GB of memory and a 64GB SSD for $599 (about £450, AU$790). HP Envy x2 is slated to launch next sprint, the company hasn't provided the pricing and availability details yet.

Both of these devices will come preinstalled with Windows 10 S but will allow for a one-time upgrade to a full Windows 10 license which will allow users to install non-Windows store applications. PC market is not falling it is just the beginning of an ERA.
