The Mukesh Ambani-led Jio has held talks with U.S. chip major Qualcomm to bring out laptops running the Windows 10 operating system with built-in cellular connections for the Indian market.

Laptops with connectivity is the new idea being worked upon by Reliance Jio, which has been successful in disrupting the Indian telecom market through rock bottom pricing for data and free calls from anywhere to anywhere.

Reliance Jio, which disrupted the telecom industry with its offers, is reportedly in talks with an American company to introduce a laptop with a SIM card in the country. Globally, the chipmaker is already working on the so-called 'Always connected PCs' with players like HP, Lenovo and Asus. Qualcomm is already working with the company on the 4G feature phone launched by Jio past year.

However, Qualcomm powered laptops are yet to hit global markets, so it is going to take a while before Jio gets their own SIM connected laptop.

Qualcomm, in turn, is reported to be engaging the Indian company Smartron that specializes in Internet of Things (IoT) to develop laptops that can carry their Snapdragon 835 processor.

Earlier, Reliance Jio had announced that it was increasing data allowances in all of its plans by 500MB without any increase in prices. Plus, laptop users generally require more data. The new development follows the launch of the Airtel Rs. 499 pack that brought 2GB of daily data for 82 days.

The regulator has also said that telecom operators will have to provide services to all subscribers availing the same tariff plan in a non-discriminatory manner. Reliance Retail sells MiFi dongles, LYF-branded smartphones and 4G-enabled feature phone. This kind of connection will be more secure than the conventional hotspot connections. This means that user will access internet on the laptop without depending on the Wi-Fi or any data card. What is being offered would be new for network providers, for OEMs and also for the users.
