Microsoft is proud to present their Windows 10 Continuum running super smoothly on Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 based Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950XL, the Microsoft branded devices resulting from the acquisition of Nokia, following a huge work by Microsoft together with their partners such as Qualcomm, to bring a full Windows 10 experience to ARM, powering the future of the Desktop and the Laptop through an ARM Powered smartphone, outputting a full Windows experience to an external display using DisplayPort over USB Type-C through a desktop dock or a laptop dock.
Backwards compatibility of x86 Windows apps can be supported through a cloud solution, such as the one HP is providing with their HP Elite x3 Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 based Windows Continuum phone coming out a few months from now.
I believe the best solution for Microsoft will be to support Windows 10 on Android, so when you dock an Android phone through a desktop dock or a laptop dock, then Microsoft needs to make sure that a full Windows 10 Continuum on ARM experience can be outputted from the Android phone on that secondary display. Microsoft needs to make Windows 10 an "external-only" home replacement which needs to work on any Android device.

Intel partners with Huawei to release Huawei's first Intel consumer device, the Huawei MateBook running on an Intel Core-M3/M5/M7 processor, with different skews from 4GB/8GB RAM and from 128GB/512GB SSD storage, to be sold from $699 to $1599 without the keyboard dock. Kirk Skaugen talks about how Intel says that the 2-in-1 segment is their fastest growing consumer client market after the phablet with a 40% growth in 2015 compared with 2014 (but not saying how many units that represents). Kirk Skaugen also says Intel is looking forward to provide "full" Windows Continuum products also taking advantage of USB Type-C DisplayPort and other screen outputs and smart docks that add connectors also through USB Type-C like the MateDock.
Off camera I asked him (as I've been asking every Intel spokesperson that I see at tradeshows for years) when Intel would be making ARM Processors for consumer devices in their Fab, letting the market choose which architecture is best to use, but he smiled and didn't respond. Check back later on my channel for more on that, probably.
