Snapdragon Powering Windows (PC)

They’re showing it off at CES. It’s a Windows 8 core OS (no new UI) running on an ARM chip which is Snapdragon in this case. So your PC and phone can use the same low power chips. Nvidia (Tegra), Intel and Texas Instruments also showed their processors. There’s hardware acceleration speeding up everything, even IE9 and HTML5. Those ARM chips running early software are outperforming my Windows 7 PC. I didn’t think it was such a big deal…but it’s legit. Let’s see how ultra cheap and small PCs with instant on and huge battery lives are going to compete with the traditional mobile market.
