The Android-Powered Remix Ultra Tablet


Remix ultra tabletJide, a company founded by a trio of ex-Google engineers, believes Android tablets are "terrible at getting real work done." Enter the Remix, an "ultra tablet" running on a custom version of the OS launched at CES 2015.

At first glance the Remix looks like the Microsoft Surface-- or, rather, it looks very much like the Surface. Like the Windows-powered device it features an 11.6-inch 1920x1080 display, magnetic power connector, detachable keyboard cover and a built-in dual-angle kickstand. The OS (a modified version of Android 4.4 dubbed "Remix OS") also borrows some elements from Windows, including a taskbar, file manager, multiple on-screen windows, improved mouse support and a clean look surely inspired by Microsoft's Metro UI.

Specifications-wise it carries an Nvidia Tegra 4 processor, 2GB RAM, 64GB storage (expandable via microSD slot), 5MP rear- and front-facing cameras 8100mAh battery and a USB OTG port.

The Remix tablet should hit European markets by Q3 2015 (following launch in Jide's home China) in several colours, including "bright red" and "clean silver."
