It is official now, Customers who will use laptops packing Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor will get free unlimited LTE data through 2018 from Sprint. It was kind of revealed last month and the announcement today clarifies which devices qualify. If you sign up for AutoPay with the carrier and buy the HP Envy X2, ASUS NovaGo or Lenovo Miix 630 then you are eligible for free unlimited data. This won’t cover devices using the new Snapdragon 850 chipset, although that’s not available in an actual computer yet, and we’ll possibly hear more later this year.
The biggest selling point of Windows on Snapdragon devices is always-available data connectivity, wherever you are you will get gigabit LTE speeds. Just have another option it would be nice to see other carriers offer similar deals. This offer from Sprint makes these laptops much more compelling.
