Reliance Jio to tie up with Qualcomm for 4G laptops in India

The Mukesh Ambani-led Jio has held talks with U.S. chip major Qualcomm to bring out laptops running the Windows 10 operating system with built-in cellular connections for the Indian market. "They could take the device and bundle it with data and content".

Globally, Qualcomm has launched Snapdragon powered laptops with players such as HP, Asus and Lenovo.

Reliance Jio, which disrupted the telecom industry with its offers, is reportedly in talks with an American company to introduce a laptop with a SIM card in the country. The Indian IoT brand Smartron has confirmed that Qualcomm is working to bring Snapdragon 835-powered laptops with cellular connectivity.

A'ja Wilson expected to be the first WNBA draft pick Thursday night
Email is my best friend and I've just been emailing them my papers and everything. "Her best basketball is ahead of her". Not in the way you would expect a potential WNBA draftee to be busy, though. "I've been so busy with my days here".

Qualcomm, which is already working with Jio and Reliance Retail on 4G feature phones, is working on similar laptop-with-SIM-card models elsewhere.

The Reliance Jio 4G laptop is expected to be price tagged with between INR 35,000 and INR 40,000. Reliance Jio evidently wants to make its presence felt among operators beyond smartphones. This could be the company's plan to increase its revenue per user. Last year, Reliance Jio had clocked $4.70 (INR 300) ARPU, much higher than all its competitors in India. This has been an age-old problem for the telecom providers in India.

After debuting with smartphones and later launching 4G feature phones and MiFi dongles in India, Reliance Jio's next bet is the prevalent laptop market in India. 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.

Trump lawyer to seek halt to Stormy Daniels' lawsuit
Avenatti told Wallace that he and Clifford would oppose the stay, noting that Cohen "knows where a lot of bodies are buried". Now, Cohen is set to argue that to participate in the Stormy Daniels suit will violate his right not to incriminate himself.

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. In the light of this news, Reliance seems adamant to embed Jio in each and every device that is capable of running the internet.

By partnering with Qualcomm for the chips, Jio 4G laptops will be more powerful, secure, and offer long-lasting battery. Hence, there will be some performance differences if you compare these laptops with the mainstream laptops that are powered by Intel's (or even AMD) processors. "It's new for the OEMs, new for the operators, and new for the channel".
