Jide Remix Mini is a mini PC in the form of stone, based on a customized version of Android OS called Remix. It ‘a very inexpensive device, a different story than the Remix Ultra Tablet launched earlier this year and sold at 399 Euros. Remix Mini was funded by a Kickstarter campaign last summer: a few “early adopters” if you are awarded for $ 20 (1GB / 8GB) and $ 40 (2GB / 16GB), but now that is officially for sale on the official website Company’s price touches $ 70 (2GB model and 16GB). Shipments are insured only in the US, but we do not exclude that in the coming months it should be extended to Europe.
Meanwhile, however, if you are in Italy, you can take advantage of some store shipping also in our country: on Amazon.it, for example, you can buy a Remix Mini priced at 65 Euros but with shipping times can take some time (at least 2- 3 weeks).
Remix Mini comes with a quad-core 1.2GHz Allwinner H64 (Cortex-A53) with Mali 400 GPU, 1-2GB of RAM, 8-16GB of ROM, HDMI output, infrared, 10/100 Ethernet, WiFi 802.11n Bluetooth. On the cover it has an integrated capacitive touch button on / off, while the sides recognize two USB 2.0 ports, audio jack and a slot for microSD cards up to 128GB. The chassis measures 2.6 x 12.4 x 8.8 cm.
Remix OS is designed to make Android operating system desktop-style: simply connect a keyboard, a mouse and a display, and will become a Remix Mini PC in effect to edit documents, surf the web and watch videos on larger screens. This OS adds some sort of start menu and custom features including a browser and a tray for Android. Remix OS, makes it possible to perform some (but not all) Android app in resizable windows, which you can place anywhere on the screen. In short, it is a good compromise to surf, movies, streaming and a few games.
