KDDI and Okinawa Cellular, a regional wireless operator in Japan, announced the launch of a new pre-paid plan called 'LTE Data Pre-paid', supporting the latest eSIM-enabled Windows 10 PCs.

This follows the introduction of the 'Mobile Communications Plan' by Microsoft which is made available in the April 2018 update to its Windows 10 OS for mobile PCs. The new Mobile Communications Plan will debut on Intel-based eSIM compatible new 'Always Connected' PCs from HP.

Among HP's first 'Always Connected' PCs will be the recently launched HP ENVY 12 x 2 along with the HP EliteBook 830 G5 Notebook PC with its latest enterprise-class security features which will enable customers to experience the benefits of a seamless computing experience between work and life.

With the LTE Data Pre-paid plan, KDDI subscribers will not need to get a separate SIM card for connectivity to their mobile PCs. In addition, KDDI users can data-share their smartphone plans and take advantage of the available data allocation.

KDDI is the first to leverage this service in Asia. According to KDDI, the new plan will enable customers in Japan and travelers to Japan to easily use high-speed networks on their PC while in the country.

Thin and light mobile PCs with robust security features play an important role in supporting diverse lifestyles and workstyles, added KDDI.
