The Register has heard the names of the three vendors that Qualcomm will tap to produce Win10 machines running on their chips. The winners are as expected, Lenovo, HP and ASUS will be licensed to sell these mysterious low powered and extremely mobile devices. Unfortunately that is pretty much all we know, there were no dates nor models announced by Qualcomm or its new partners. We can certainly speculate that these devices will be as thin as the battery will allow, the cooling solution for a Snapdragon can be extremely compact, assume that you will not see any wired NICs as the RJ-45 jack would be thicker than the device. We should be able to assume their will be a headphone jack at least.
"The chipmaker says the three vendors will be making PCs that will sport its Snapdragon 835 SoC (system-on-chip) and its X16 LTE chipset for wireless broadband connectivity. Qualcomm says all of the models will be fanless and will offer all-day battery life."
