Ex-Googlers Unveil Remix Ultra Tablet, An Android-powered Surface
Three ex-employees of Google came up with their own company called Jide, and at this year’s CES, they have shared their first product called Remix Ultra Tablet, which they are looking to launch in the market later this year.
It is basically an Android Tablet, which as you know are already available in different ranges in the market, so what’s new? This Android tablet comes with its own Magnetic Keyboard that will let you extend it from 40 to 80 degrees, making you feel more at home in Microsoft’s Surface lineup.
This tablet-cum-PC has been manufactured using a combination of metal and plastic, which gives it a premium feel when you hold it. The edges of this device as you would expect, contain stereo speakers, a headphone jack, micro USB port along with OTG adapter and finally, a micro SD card slot that will allow you to add 128 GB of more disk space.
With this Android Tablet, you will be getting your hands on Nvidia 4+1 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 64 GB internal storage, 5-megapixel cameras (Front and Back). The display will be of 11.6-inches and will feature 1080p IPS display.
At the right side of Remix Ultra Tablet, you will find a slot that will support 4-pin charger. The keyboard which is the main feature of this tablet has all the buttons that you need along with a very responsive Touchpad that makes the navigation a whole lot easier for users.
At the time of showing, Remix Ultra Tablet was running the Android 4.4.2 version called Remix OS, but Jide assured that the team is hard at work to bring Android 5.0 to the tablet. This specifically designed update for the tablet will allow you to use it as a PC and run your favorite apps.
Furthermore, this device has come up with the Google certification, so you can expect to play all of your favorite apps on the device as well.
The feature that has been getting a lot of praise is the app running in the small window. The Remix Ultra Tablet will allow you to either run an app in the full screen or you can play it in the windowed version, just like PC.
Interested parties will be able to get their hands on Remix Ultra Tablet 16GB model for $349, while 64 GB model will cost $449. It will be available in two colors: Bright Red and Clean Silver, so that the users will have some sort of choice.
