Always-connected PCs become relevant

1 comment

Intel and its partners unveiled always-connected PCs at Computex today.
ASUS CEO Jonney Shih joined Gregory Bryant, Intel senior vice-president and GM of the Client Computing Group, to unveil ASUS’s always connected PC, code-named “Kukuna”.
Powered by Intel Core processors and Intel LTE connectivity, ASUS’s super-thin and lightweight 2-in-1 is the latest example in a category of PCs that Intel believes will become increasingly relevant as data plan costs decrease and people’s desires for access from any location at any time increases.
The ASUS design joins more than 30 other always connected PCs on the market today.
The Samsung Galaxy Book, Mi Notebook Air 13,3-inch and Lenovo ThinkPad L470 are other examples with Intel performance, full Windows experiences, instant accessibility from anywhere thanks to world-class connectivity and long battery life in thin, light PCs.
These PCs will meet the needs of individuals or professionals who require access to the full PC experience on their terms.
Intel is investing in eSIM and LTE technologies, and its leaders are working closely with Microsoft to validate eSIM-enabled always connected platforms with multiple carriers using the Intel XMMT 7260 modem and the upcoming Intel XMM 7360 modem.
This joint work is another layer of Intel’s Project EVO collaboration to move computing to a new level – one where PCs are capable of even more unbelievable things, including smarter voice inputs, mixed/merged reality experiences for all, powerful gaming innovations, strengthened security and identity protection, and true, always connected experiences.

    I think phones are a very small form factor. I also hate that I have to have two devices. I am looking forward to just having a fairly good sized form factor windows 10 2 in 1 as my only device.
