The Launch of Reliance Jio 4G Laptops

The absorption of the subsidiaries by Reliance Industries comes close on the heels of the firm’s latest string of acquisitions in the content space Reliance Jio planning to launch always connected PCs with Qualcomm: Report

If this comes out to be true then Jio laptops will connect to the Internet automatically when switched on without the need of manual Wi-Fi or LAN connection. With always connected PCs, Reliance Jio stands to expand its service and increase its average revenue per user, which is already the highest among its peers.

Needless to say that Reliance Jio has made data accessible and affordable like never before. The company has held talks with USA chipmaker Qualcomm to bring out laptops running the Windows 10 operating system with an inbuilt cellular connection for the Indian market. It's worth pointing out that Jio and Reliance are already in talks to bring 4G feature phones. Smartron confirmed the talks.

Qualcomm is already talking to Smartron to bring the Snapdragon 835-powered laptops with cellular connectivity.

Jio is most likely to bundle these laptops with data and content.

Last year, Microsoft launched always-connected PCs from Asus and HP with Snapdragon 835 chipset and Windows 10 under the hood.

Bruins vs. Maple Leafs Game 1: Full highlights, final score and more
Led by their top line, the Bruins applied some pressure the other way after Toronto fired off the first five shots of the period. That seemingly innocuous loss could be the death blow for the Bruins but either way this series is going to be must-see TV.

As many as 14 major operators have extended support for this, including AT&T, Sprint and Verizon in the United States, and others in the UK, Germany, Australia, France and Italy.

Reliance Jio's entry into the ailing PC market is being hailed as a huge deal and could rejuvenate the lost interest in laptops.

Neil Shah, research director, devices & ecosystems at Counterpoint Research, said that cellular-connected laptops could be the next big ARPU device for operators beyond smartphones.

Furthermore, laptops with built-in cellular connectivity options also reduce the security risk that's associated with Internet usage when you connect to "free" public Wi-Fi networks.

Qualcomm's Nunes said, "We are trying to make sure that the operators understand the value". "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".
