Acer, a Taiwanese leader in electronics, has incorporated Gemalto miniaturized embedded SIM (eSIM) into its Swift 7 laptops to offer ultra-portable, always-connected PCs that enable users to be connected on the go.

Compliant with the GSMA Remote SIM Provisioning specifications, Gemalto eSIM is fully integrated with Windows 10. Users can easily activate the default telecom operator profile which comes with the new Acer Swift 7.

The US, Mainland China, and Japan are expected to be the top three markets in terms of mobility spending throughout the forecast period.

By 2022, more than 4 in 10 employees around the world are expected to be mobile, according to Strategy Analytics.

"With Gemalto’s proven expertise in eSIM deployment, the Acer Swift 7 can help professionals stay productive with flexible and seamless connectivity on the go," said Jerry Hou, general manager, Consumer Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer.

“Similar to smartphones, always-connected PCs such as Acer’s Swift 7 will get notifications and pull data without ever disconnecting.
