BARCELONA, Spain – Mobile World Congress
Qualcomm says it is working with Microsoft to provide test PCs to select developers to test and optimize apps for the forthcoming Snapdragon-powered Windows on ARM PCs and tablets. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon will be joining Microsoft’s Windows on the ARM developer seeding program. This invitation-only program will combine a pre-release version of Windows on ARM with the next-generation,Snapdragon S4 test PCs. These test PCs will not be representative of commercial form factors or the final Windows on ARM experience; but will be designed to give developers early access to building and testing Windows Metro style apps.
The test PCs contain Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor with second-generation high performance, power efficient CPU, hardware accelerated Adreno graphics, full multimedia, GPS, sensors, and peripherals.
