According to Microsoft, there are around 700 million active devices using Windows 10 which represents a significant market for developers. Processor architecture traditionally used in smartphones is now readily available in the laptop market with the emergence of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx series. Enabling smartphone-like experiences including all-day battery life, instant on, and always connected through the LTE connectivity.
