Remix is an ultra-tablet with an Android-based device, designed by three senior engineers formerly of Google. The company is gearing up for a Kickstarter campaign. Remix is an Android 4.4.2 based, 11.6” ultra-tablet, that allows to run Android apps in multiple windows. The Remix OS (operating system) is a customized version of Android that merges the productivity functions of a laptop or PC with the simplified user experience.
David Ko, CEO and cofounder of Jide Technology, says, “People look at tablets as leisure. For entertainment only, but then they’re not doing any work … what can we do?” Remix sets out to bridge the gap by adding productivity features back into a tablet.
Remix OS is a custom engineered Android so that it’s optimized for big touchscreens and attached keyboards. A taskbar at the bottom of your screen helps to manage and switch between running apps.
The Kickstarter project already have reached their goal of $100,000 with more than 1000 backers and the device’s retail price is $399.
