Microsoft is bringing the full Windows 10 experience to mobile chipsets

Microsoft is looking forward to making the new Windows 10 adopted first on ARM-based laptops and to make the experience whole for an end-user, Traditional x86 desktop apps will be imitated as well. Imagine the desktop computer that will run the same version of Adobe Photoshop on your mobile or tablet or games, the effect is longer battery life, less heat on the device and all the advantages of ARM will be now in Windows 10.

Chip manufacturer Qualcomm and Microsoft have teamed up to support Windows 10 on mobile computing devices powered by Snapdragon processors.

Together, developments like these could signal that significant shifts in the microprocessor market are on the horizon.

This latest collaboration may finally put the Microsoft Surface Phone 2017 in the lead given the enhanced productivity brought in by Windows 10 apps.

In a blog post about several announcements made yesterday in China, Myerson - who is executive vice president for Microsoft's Windows and Devices Group - said the new Snapdragon-powered collaboration with Qualcomm is aimed at meeting "our customers' growing needs to create on the go". The OS has many bugs that it couldn't install apps like iTunes, Photoshop or even Google, resulting in the company's abandonment of this idea a year ago. Myerson also noted that the use of Windows 10 on mobile will maximize the time of the users. The processors created by Qualcomm are used in nearly all high-tech smartphones available right now and the reason behind that is because their chipsets are optimized so that they don't drain all of the mobile device's battery life.

Microsoft will naturally launch Universal Windows Platform initially in the Windows 10 smartphones because these UWP apps are touch-friendly, scalable, and power-efficient.

Qualcomm collaborates with Microsoft to equip Windows 10 computing devices with Snapdragon chipsets. Even better, developers will not need to make any modifications to their games with Windows 10 running on ARM processors. "This includes offering a wide range of PC form factors and price points that give people choice in mobility, whether they are carrying an ultra-thin and light notebook or a cool 2 in 1".
