The Launch of Reliance Jio 4G Laptops

13 April 2018

Well, laptops with built-in cellular connectivity options would actually be appealing to a lot many, because with the current laptops, we have to either plug-in a 3G/4G dongle or connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot to get Internet connectivity on the laptop. Reliance Jio took this step so as to increase its average revenue per user (ARPU). A report by ETTelecom says that Reliance Jio is in talks with Qualcomm to bring new laptops with cellular connectivity.

Having said that, Indian technology brand Smartron too is in talks with Qualcomm to bring Snapdragon 835-powered laptops to the market with cellular connectivity.

After smartphones and the 4G feature phone, a laptop with a SIM card is reported to be the next big bet for Reliance Jio.

However, these laptops with cellular connectivity from Jio may not be powered by Intel processors, and may come with Qualcomm's Snapdragon chips. The chipmaker has confirmed the development, though Reliance Jio is yet to officially issue any confirmation.

Jio is most likely to bundle these laptops with data and content. Neil Shah, research director, devices & ecosystems at Counterpoint Research, told ET, "So if these productivity-centric devices are connected to cellular networks, it will boost the value proposition, driving growth for this segment: first, by providing ubiquitous connectivity on the go and, second, in terms of privacy and security as the cellular connectivity is highly secure compared to Wi-Fi hotspots". A global research firm named Counterpoint Research specialists in technology and mobile products, said that nearly 5 million laptops are sold in India every year and laptops with cellular connectivity could be the next big hit in India and for ARPU. With workplaces encouraging employees to bring their own devices and changing scenario where people work from remote place, a connected PC stands to gain significant traction and its success depends on operators with vast network and connectivity solutions.
