Reliance Jio may launch laptops with cellular connectivity

Reliance Jio may launch laptops with cellular connectivity

In comparison, Reliance Jio is providing 2GB data per day, unlimited voice calls, free roaming, 100 SMSs free per day and access to Jio apps at Rs 198, with a validity of 28 days.

Globally, Qualcomm is already working with players such as HP, Asus and Lenovo for the so-called "Always Connected PCs".

The chipmaker is also talking to home-bred Internet of Things (IoT) brand Smartron to bring the Snapdragon 835-powered laptops with cellular connectivity.

Jio is working on optical fibre which will enhance the downloading and uploading speed of the user, and as per the report the optical fibre will be launched this year only and the service offered under it could be 100GB data at 100mbps speed in the initial phase as part of its preview offer.

Apart from its network operations, Reliance Jio continues to expand its device portfolio through its retail network. In a tough competition, Jio and Airtel are launching new offers daily or revising the rates of previous data plan by giving discounted rates or increased data limit. Last year, Reliance Jio had clocked $4.70 (INR 300) ARPU, much higher than all its competitors in India. If your device requires an internet as fast as 4G, apparently Reliance wants that it should run on Jio, and that's why a 4G laptop bundled with free data is what Reliance Jio is betting on. As per counterpoint data, total laptops sold every year in India is close to 5 million and majority connect to either enterprise, home or public wi-fi hotspots.

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 kind of connection will be more secure than the conventional hotspot connections. That would pave the way for the SIM card to be inserted and a smartphone cum laptop can be made available to the users. What is being offered would be new for network providers, for OEMs and also for the users.
