Along with our hardware partners HP and Asus, we showed the world the first full featured Always Connected PCs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset running Windows 10 and a new, optimized version of Office 365.

According to Myerson, Always Connected PCs enable a new culture of work, since they are instantly on, provide great battery life and are always connected to the Internet.

Qualcomm today (Dec. 5) took the wraps off the Snapdragon 845, its next mobile platform that will no doubt power the next batch of flagship Android smartphones coming our way in 2018. Phones with a Snapdragon 845 and compatible antennas should be faster than last year's phones on the same LTE networks, and thanks to some improvements Qualcomm made earlier this year, it should also be easy for device manufacturers to use the X20 modem to support T-Mobile's new 600MHz network. Asus says that the NovaGo is the company's ultra-sleek and lightweight laptop, and it features instant on and resume feature.

It nearly sounds too good to be true, so we've gone hands on with the NovaGo to see if the early signs are positive.

Asus is describing the 13.3-inch NovaGo (TP370) as the world's first Gigabit LTE-capable laptop.

Next, it was the turn of HP's Kevin Frost, who also unveiled a Snapdragon 835-powered Windows 10 laptop at the event: the HP Envy x2. Both models will launch with Windows 10 S, but can be upgraded to the full Windows 10 experience. It features a 20-hour active battery life and 4G LTE2 connectivity. HP Envy x2 is slated to launch next sprint, the company hasn't provided the pricing and availability details yet.

The model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage runs to $799.

"We are again at the beginning of another major technology shift: the ability to be connected anytime, anywhere with Always Connected PCs that are instantly on, always connected with incredible battery life".
