The Dell XPS 10 brings the Snapdragon S4 Processor to Windows RT

Aug 30, 2012

Qualcomm products mentioned within this post are offered by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and/or its subsidiaries.

At IFA Berlin, Dell announced the XPS 10, a gorgeous 10-inch tablet that caters to both consumers and professionals. This tablet is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, a fully-integrated, system-on-chip solution capable of running the gamut of Windows applications. Unlike traditional PC processors, a Snapdragon-powered tablet is designed to easily provide a full day’s worth of battery life and lasting days on standby without a battery charge.

Dell’s XPS brand has always stood for high performance and premium computing. Today’s launch of the XPS 10, Dell’s first Windows RT tablet, continues this tradition. The XPS 10 boasts a vibrant 10-inch multi-touch screen with enhanced viewing angles, giving it the ingredients for a fabulous multimedia experience. The accessories, however, are what give this tablet its business focus. A QWERTY keyboard dock is fully detachable, while all-day battery capability -- thanks to a Snapdragon processor -- will provide the intersection between work and play.

The Dell XPS 10 will be available in the coming months. Stay tuned.

Windows 10 powered by Snapdragon

In 2017 you’ll be able to pick up a Windows 10 device powered by next generation Qualcomm Snapdragon processors.

The announcement was made earlier today at the Microsoft Windows Hardware Engineering Community (WinHEC) event in Shenzhen, China. Microsoft’s Terry Myerson (EVP, Windows and Devices Group) invited Qualcomm Technologies’ Cristiano Amon (EVP, Qualcomm Technologies & President, QCT) onstage to unveil the collaboration that will enable Windows 10 to run on our premium-tier Snapdragon processors.

Myerson demoed Windows 10 running on a slim and fan-less prototype laptop, powered by a Snapdragon processor. Commercial devices are expected to be available in the second half of 2017.

Watch a video demonstration of Windows 10 running on Snapdragon:

Windows 10 powered by Snapdragon processors will offer the same apps and features as Windows 10 on tablets, notebooks, laptops, and PCs. Devices will run Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and Win32 apps through emulation. In the demo video, you can see a mix of both apps, including the Microsoft Edge browser and Adobe Photoshop running fast and smooth.

Windows 10 running on Snapdragon can allow Windows hardware makers to build exciting new devices. “Qualcomm Snapdragon processors offer one of the world’s most advanced mobile computing features, including Gigabit LTE connectivity, advanced multimedia support, machine learning and superior hardware security features, all while supporting thin, fan-less designs and long battery life,” said Amon. “With compatibility with the Windows 10 ecosystem, the Qualcomm Snapdragon platform is expected to support mobility to cloud computing and redefine how people will use their compute devices.”

Stayed tuned for more information on Windows 10, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon.

Snapdragon and Allwinner LTE white label tablets success on display at Computex

Qualcomm Snapdragon processors with 4G LTE aren’t just for smartphones, cars, and the Internet of Things. They’re also used in tablets, from the latest cutting-edge high-end devices to the most cost-efficient, yet valuable devices made.

As you might have seen, last year Qualcomm Technologies struck up a valuable collaboration with Allwinner Technology to enable Chinese OEMs and ODMs to develop cost-effective Snapdragon based 4G LTE tablets for domestic sales and worldwide export. This was to further benefit these companies by having a well-recognized, respected, and trusted brand name like Snapdragon associated with their devices, and to look at new and effective ways to market these devices through operator channels, to more efficiently distribute into the hands of tech-savvy consumers.

We’re happy to say this collaboration is already bearing fruit, as evidenced by the number of Snapdragon 4G LTE-enabled tablets being unveiled by OEMs like Cube with its 7-inch T2 phablet (to be available this summer within and outside of China), and ODMs like Emdoor with its 8-inch, 10-inch and industrial sized tablets. Both Emdoor and Cube will showcase these new devices at their booths at Computex 2016.

This is all thanks to a win-win relationship among Qualcomm Technologies, Allwinner, several Chinese ODM and OEMs, carriers, and global retailers.
