This year at IFA, we get another glimpse into what the future may hold as technology evolves and, more tangibly, the devices consumers will have in hand. This week, we’ve seen numerous partners announce new and innovative modern devices that allow people to achieve more. To fully light up these new devices, we’re continuing to evolve our experiences and features to bring more functionality and delight to our Windows users.
Erin Chapple, corporate vice president, Microsoft, speaking at the IFA 2018 keynote in Berlin
As part of this commitment, I’m pleased to announce that our next feature update to Windows will be called the Windows 10 October 2018 Update. With this update, we’ll be bringing new features and enhancements to the nearly 700 million devices running Windows 10 that help people make the most of their time. We’ll share more details about the update over the coming weeks.
We’re excited to continue to innovate with our partners and to bring new and meaningful technology to this ever-changing world. Today at IFA, Nick Parker, corporate vice president, Consumer and Device Sales, and Erin Chapple will be showcasing a number of these great new Windows PCs as part of our keynote presentation. For those of you that can’t be at IFA, not to worry. Here’s Erin to tell you more about the exciting innovation she’ll be showing in Berlin.
New PCs, new opportunities (Erin Chapple, corporate vice president, Microsoft)
I’m so excited to be here in Berlin to share new Windows experiences that help people achieve more – all come to life by new modern PCs announced this week.
One of the areas that remains a top commitment for us is the connected computing space. Earlier this week, we took another step forward in our focus on connected PC experiences with the announcement of the first Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 powered Always Connected PC: the Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS (Windows on Snapdragon). Lean, light and crafted from premium aluminum, the Yoga C630 WOS offers LTE connectivity and, as noted by Lenovo, an incredible up to 25+ hours of battery life. Combined with powerful entertainment features and an optional Lenovo pen, the Yoga C630 WOS is designed for wherever the day takes you.

Beautiful devices like the Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS are pairing the functionality of Windows 10 with portable, lightweight devices that keep our users connected to the things that are important to them, while on the go. We believe that the mobile, cellular-connected PC experience is going to continue to grow in popularity, and devices like the Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS, as well as connected PCs from ASUS and HP that went on sale earlier this year, are ensuring that we have a robust and diverse portfolio of products to keep users connected and happy.
Lenovo also announced the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 – a multi-year, multi-release investment by Lenovo focusing on creativity and productivity for the mobile user, using new paradigms of input and content consumption built on the Windows 10 platform, combined with optional Office productivity tools. At the press of a button, the Yoga Book C930’s E Ink display appears and serves as a keyboard, notepad and eReader. Ultra-thin and light, the device is packed with Windows hero features like Cortana, Windows Ink and Windows Hello, along with optional 4G connectivity to keep you productive all-day long.

Another great productivity PC is the Dell Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1. It brings beauty from every angle with a 3-sided narrow border that focuses on the IPS and Active Pen compatible touch screen. The Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 brings a ‘Modern Standby’ feature for instant-on performance and the ability to log in with just one touch using the Windows Hello fingerprint reader, while a miniature 4-element lens webcam offers temporal noise reduction and increases image quality in low-light settings.

One of the devices that really turned heads in the booth this week was the new Surface Go. It offers all the comforts of a laptop, with the convenience of a 10’’ tablet. Sometimes, a little can go a long way, and the Surface Go offers a small, 1.15 pound portable 2-in-1 form factor that adapts to the way you want to work. Whether at work or home, travelling, or just for everyday tasks, it runs Office365 with a touchscreen, has built-in Windows Hello for a more secure sign-in and offers note taking, drawing and more with the Surface Pen.

And, of course, we have to have something for our gaming fans! The newly refreshed Acer Predator Triton 900 gaming rig sports the latest 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor for ultimate power and speed, while the laptop’s hinge pivots the screen to fit whatever angle you’d like to game at. With the garage door, you can insert an Xbox controller dongle to play Xbox games seamlessly, and a custom-engineered dual-fan keeps things cool while the RGB backlit keyboard and overclocking capabilities customize your gaming experience.

As you can imagine, this is only a small snapshot of the great innovation that is coming from our partners this week here in Berlin. Whether it’s gaming, productivity or creativity that drives you, there’s truly a modern Windows 10 PC that will help you achieve more. And, as Roanne mentioned, we’re excited to bring even more experiences and innovation to our customers with the Windows 10 October 2018 Update.

Lean, light and crafted from premium aluminum, the Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS (Windows on Snapdragon) 2-in-1 convertible offers smartphone-like integrated 4.5G LTE Advanced Pro [2] connectivity and up to 25+ hours of local video playback on a single charge [3], thanks to the power-efficient architecture of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 Mobile Compute Platform.
For times when you’re away from Wi-Fi, the Yoga C630 WOS receives updates and emails just like your smartphone, even in sleep mode. And you won’t be more than a moment from use.
But it’s not just all work and no play. Beneath the eye-catching polished metal exterior, the Yoga C630 WOS boasts a 13.3-inch FHD touchscreen display, which combined with powerful stereo speakers for enhanced sound, produces a portable entertainment hub. One that you can flip into a position that’s best for you, whether in laptop or tablet mode.
And if you’d rather be more active, get creative with an optional Lenovo Pen, whenever and wherever the mood strikes. Using the Yoga C630 WOS as your canvas or notepad, you can mark up a document, draw on your photos or unleash your imagination with Windows Ink.
Lenovo Yoga S730

Polished in premium aluminum and sleeker than ever, the Lenovo Yoga S730 is the thinnest consumer clamshell laptop yet at 11.9 mm. But it still packs a lot in such a slim form factor: the latest Intel processing, FHD clarity and the immersive sound of the Dolby Atmos Speaker System.
Multitasking is easy [4], thanks to the latest generation of Intel Core i7 processing, which represents an enormous increase in performance from previous generations.
While you enjoy FHD clarity on a 13.3-inch wide-angle display with razor-thin bezels, keep moving for up to 10 hours [5] with the Yoga S730’s long-lasting battery. And if you need an extra boost, an hour plugged-in will provide up to 80 percent battery life [6].

Lenovo also announced the latest addition to the premium ThinkPad X1 laptop portfolio, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme. This device introduces a 15-inch form factor to the X1 series and is the first to include NVIDIA discrete graphics. The X1 Extreme is designed for advanced users and prosumers who seek a thin and light laptop that reflects their personality as well as high performance computing needs.
It is ideal for data intensive workloads; video and photo editing; graphics rendering; and virtual and mixed reality applications. With NVIDIA GeForce 1050Ti graphics, you can also sneak in time with your favorite games.
Work spaces can be anywhere from home to office, coffee shop to airplane. Weight is a critical consideration when moving between environments. Starting at just 3.76 pounds, the X1 Extreme is 12 percent lighter than its popular cousin, the ThinkPad T580.
The combination of 8th generation Intel Core processors, including the six-core Intel Core i9 coming soon [1], up to 64GB of memory and dual PCIe SSD storage option with Raid 0/1 capability brings the highest performance ever seen on a X1 Series.
Far field microphones and Dolby Audio Premium enhance productivity and collaboration for the best conferencing experiences and up to 15 hours of battery life mean users can work – and play – for longer. Rapid Charge will then fuel the X1 Extreme up to 80 percent in just 60 minutes.
The ThinkPad X1 Extreme will be available from September starting at $1,859.

Mobile World Congress 2018: Five things you can do with Lenovo’s two new Windows 10 PCs

This week at Mobile World Congress, Lenovo introduced their newest 2-in-1s: the new Yoga 730 (in 13-inch and 15-inch models) and the new 14-inch Flex 14. These new devices will start to become available at select retailers this April and range in price from $599-$899.6
Here’s five ways they make working on-the-go easier than ever:

#1: Take one with you – they’re convertible and lighter than ever
The new Windows 10 convertibles are lighter than before, so you can easily take them with you wherever you go. Shedding 13 percent of its weight, the 15-inch Yoga 730 is just 1.89 kg (4.17 lbs) and 1.12 kg (2.47 lbs) for the even more compact 13-inch model. At 1.6 kg (3.53 lbs), the 14-inch Flex 14 won’t weigh your bag down, either – it’s 11 percent thinner than before at just 17.6mm (0.69 in).

#2: Save time & effort with Cortana
Cortana[1]  is available on your Yoga 730 to help you with everyday tasks by just using your voice[2]. Say “Hey, Cortana,” and she’s ready to provide you with helpful information, check your calendar[3], give you a preview of your day across work and life, and take care of everyday tasks and reminders.

#3: Log in with your fingerprint with Windows Hello
Both the Yoga 730 and Flex 14 come with a built-in fingerprint reader, so you can quickly and easily log into your device with Windows Hello. When you’re on the go, feel at ease with Lenovo Vantage and its Wi-Fi monitoring security features. Lenovo Vantage combines several apps into one to help you identify secure Wi-Fi networks, migrate files and settings from one PC to another and get system diagnostics and support.

#4: Charge your device for 15 minutes and get two hours of battery with built-in Rapid Charge[4]
The Yoga 730 offers up to 11.5 hours of battery life on the 13-inch model and up to 11 hours on the 15-inch in FHD.4 Running from meeting to meeting on a busy day? With Rapid Charge, in just 15 minutes you can get up to 2 hours of usage of your Flex 14 and 13-inch Yoga 730 to help power through your day without worrying about plugging in.[5]
#5: Write on your touchscreen with Windows Ink
The new devices come with up to a UHD touchscreen display on the Yoga 730 and a FHD touchscreen display on the Flex 14, with razor-thin borders, so you can swipe, pinch and tap to browse the web with Microsoft Edge. You can also use the optional Lenovo Active Pen 2 with 4,096 levels of sensitivity to write, draw or annotate with Windows Ink for a pen-on-paper experience.

Always Connected PCs enable a new culture of work

Throughout the history of personal computing, a steady wave of progress has changed how we interact with technology in both our work and personal lives. Microsoft and our partners have led many of these shifts in technology like enabling the original mobile computer – the laptop, navigating with touch, signing in with your face, detaching screens from keyboards, exploring mixed reality, and storing your files in the cloud. We are again at the beginning of another major technology shift: the ability to be connected anytime, anywhere with Always Connected PCs that are instantly on, always connected with incredible battery life.
Terry Myerson, Windows and Devices Group Executive Vice President, shares his personal experience with Always Connected PCs at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit.
New Always Connected PCs unveiled
Last year at this time, I was with many of our hardware partners at the WinHEC event in Shenzhen, China, where we painted a new vision for connected computing with built-in LTE connectivity, devices that are instantly on and battery life that went beyond hours into days and weeks. We also set a goal for us to begin delivering on this promise within one year.
Today, at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit, I stood with Cristiano Amon, President of Qualcomm Chips, and we delivered on the promise that we made then. Along with our hardware partners HP and ASUS, we showed the world the first full-featured Always Connected PCs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset running Windows 10 and a new, optimized version of Office 365. ASUS and HP have worked hand in hand with us to deliver on pushing the boundaries of what a PC can do, and we continue to work closely with Lenovo as they build their own Always Connected PC.
ASUS NovaGo is the world’s first Gigabit LTE laptop, with superfast download speeds allowing users to download a 2-hour movie in just 10 seconds. Powered by a Qualcomm® Snapdragon 835 Mobile PC platform with X16 LTE, the NovaGo is always on, always connected with a battery supporting 30 days of standby and 22 hours of active use.
The HP ENVY x2, an Always Connected PC, combines the best of a smartphone experience with the best of a Windows PC. Impossibly thin and incredibly durable, the HP ENVY x2 offers lightning-fast 4G LTE2 and Wi-Fi. With up to 20 hours of active use battery life, the detachable PC provides flexibility and connectivity to perform daily tasks while on the go.
Instantly on, Always Connected, and a week of battery life is liberating
One of the favorite parts of my job is trying out new products. Seeing the innovation, understanding how all the components work together, how it looks and feels, and ultimately how the customer will experience the product.
For the last few months, I have been using an Always Connected PC, running on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon platform. In the last week, I watched the movie Moana with my daughter, worked in PowerPoint, browsed the web every day, reviewed budgets in Excel, checked email while waiting to pick up my son from soccer, marked up a few PDFs with Ink, played some games on the plane – all of this without plugging in my power cord all week.
The PC is fast and responsive when I am using it and quickly goes into standby being incredibly battery efficient when I’m not using it.

This new Always Connected PC is ultrathin, beautifully designed, running Windows 10 and a new, optimized version of Office 365. But beyond the full experiences you’d expect in a PC, this new Always Connected PC has fundamentally transformed how I work, because of three significant advantages over my other PCs.
The screen is instantly on whenever I pick up the device. I never have to wait for it to wake up, it’s just on.
Being always connected wherever I am whether I am in the car, airport or coffee shop, always being connected just feels like the most natural, safe and secure way to work with teams and be creative.
Lastly, the battery life is just awesome! I am finding myself charging it once a week. When I was using a wearable that needed to charge every day, I didn’t really rely on it. Once I moved to a Fitbit that only needed charging once a week that was game changing for me. Not carrying around power cords is liberating.
Once you start using this new category of PCs that are instantly on, always connected with a week of battery life and the full Windows 10 experience, you can really feel what a big shift this will be for consumers.
Always Connected PCs enable a new culture of work with better security at a lower cost
Always Connected PCs also have three huge benefits for organizations
New culture of work: IT is always thinking about the culture of work they enable through the technology they choose: how a given device enables teams to collaborate and be productive. The Always Connected PC is a cultural shift, enabling teams to work effectively, whether they are on a corporate campus, visiting customers or on the bus commuting, freeing a real constraint on the creativity of employees today.
Better security: IT also must manage increasing security threats and is responsible for protecting an organization’s information. Security has been a huge focus for Windows 10. But there are still these public Wi-Fi hotspots out there, which every day unknowing users connect to and could put hackers in control of the data coming and going to their device, potentially enabling hackers to steal corporate data and invade user privacy. The Always Connected PC is real security progress enabling safe connectivity everywhere, bypassing untrusted networks.
Lower costs: Today IT organizations are spending millions of dollars installing, updating and maintaining Wi-Fi antennas and repeaters throughout their buildings, and upgrading those every few years to make them even faster. At the same time, mobile operators have invested billions in building fast 4G networks. The United States alone is now 98% covered by 4G. And mobile operators have now embarked on even faster 5G network build outs that will be even faster.
Just like IT is now leveraging the massive investments in cloud compute and storage in data centers like Microsoft Azure, moving networking to the cloud will lower IT costs. Today’s global mobile operators are professionally maintaining, managing and updating their networks with massive investments in speed and security. Always Connected PCs are key for IT leaders to unlock the benefits of this global networking and provide employees with a modern workplace they want at a lower cost.
With the introduction of the Always Connected PC, IT now must ask themselves: how can they leverage the public networks of Sprint, AT&T, Orange, and others – and reduce their investment in their private antennas – to give employees faster connectivity at a lower cost than they enjoy today?
For IT, the Always Connected PC enables a new culture of work, a real step forward in security and an opportunity for massive cost savings, as the local network moves to the cloud. More on this shift is detailed in Accelerating the Move to the Cloud with Always Connected Computing.
Always Connected PCs are modern Windows 10 devices with Windows Hello, touch, pen and Ink, with thin, light, elegant designs that are more secure, instantly on, always connected with a week of battery life. When I think about organizations and whether they are going to leverage the massive networks of mobile operators and adopt these new PCs – the answer is simple: It is not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when and how fast all mobile PCs become Always Connected PCs.
