Reliance Jio may launch laptops with cellular connectivity

Reliance Jio may launch laptops with cellular connectivity

In contrast, Reliance Jio offers 84GB of data for 28 days at Rs. 299 and 140GB of data for 70 days at Rs. 398. The company is working with major PC manufacturers for the "always-connected personal computers". The Indian IoT brand Smartron has confirmed that Qualcomm is working to bring Snapdragon 835-powered laptops with cellular connectivity. Qualcomm is already working with the company on the 4G feature phone launched by Jio past year.

Apart from its network operations, Reliance Jio continues to expand its device portfolio through its retail network. The company is seeking to increase its average revenue per user (ARPU) by adding as many devices as they can.

While on one hand Reliance Jio accuses incumbent operators of milking the sector using borrowed money, older players like Airtel, Vodafone and Idea blame free voice and data offering by the Mukesh Ambani firm for bleeding the sector. The Internet is the backbone of nearly every computing and smart devices. Plus, laptop users generally require more data. This has been an age-old problem for the telecom providers in India. For those unaware, Jio already offers multiple devices including JioPhone, JioFi, and Lyf smartphones. The laptops also promise better security on mobile connections than public Wi-Fi hotspots. In the light of this news, Reliance seems adamant to embed Jio in each and every device that is capable of running the internet.

Jessica Jones renewed for season 3 at Netflix: Projected release date
Also featured in the first season were Eka Darville, Carrie-Anne Moss, Mike Colter, Rebecca De Mornay, and Rosario Dawson. The news comes after the release of the second season , which launched last month on International Women's Day.

Neil Shah, research director, devices & ecosystems at Counterpoint Research, said that cellular-connected laptops could be the next big ARPU device for operators beyond smartphones. This means that user will access internet on the laptop without depending on the Wi-Fi or any data card.

This can probably be the future of computing as the users could enjoy connectivity in their laptops on the go, without the hassles of mobile tethering and plugging dongles.

Telecom operators are leaving no stone unturned to take on the stiff competition from new entrant Reliance Jio.
