As it’s an electronic SIM, users are able to configure it and choose whatever data plans or contracts they require right on the devices. eSIM will essentially ensure users are able to get access to data whenever they want and wherever they want right from the Windows Store.
For Microsoft, Windows 10 coming to ARM Processors will enable it to bring new experiences to its Surface customers. The company’s so-called “Surface Phone” may actually have a lot of potential now thanks to x86 emulation.
For one, the device will have apps Microsoft’s business customers require: the classic Win32 apps. They would potentially be able to run full desktop apps such as Photoshop, Word, and other Win32 apps on Continuum from the Surface Phone which will enable them to turn their phone into a real PC.
Continuum already does this with apps built for the Universal Windows Platform — but Microsoft needs to ensure its enterprise customers are able to run the powerful apps Continuum, and x86 emulation should enable that if things go as planned. Additionally, if Continuum provides a full PC experience on mobile devices such as the rumored Surface Phone, it would be a revolutionary new feature which is possibly Microsoft’s ultimate plan.
ARM is definitely the future for Windows 10 and personal computing. Even Apple is investing highly on ARM, but it looks like Microsoft could be the first one to bring powerful ARM devices or Cellular PCs to the market with slim, fanless designs that can run desktop apps.
We hope to know more about Windows 10 on ARM at Build 2017, but more details should start showing up over the coming months. This is just the beginning, and things should get a lot more interesting from now on. Source: mspoweruser
