Jide Remix Ultra Tablet has been shown for the first time at CES 2015, when it was still a prototype, but in recent months has matured enough to be ready for the market. We ourselves have seen one of the latest revisions to the Hong Kong Electronics Fair and – let’s face it – the result is very satisfactory especially if you think that comes from a crowdfunding campaign. Who financed the project on Kickstarter, he has had the opportunity to receive a Remix with a contribution of between $ 39 and $ 349, but now the tablet is officially available on the market with pre-orders already active on Amazon at a price of $ 399.
Jide Remix Ultra Tablet
It ‘the first tablet on the market with Remix OS, but we already know that it will not be the only one because it will soon be joined by new Cube Remix, announced a few days ago and expected to 160 dollars.
Remix OS, which you can see a first hands-on in the video below, is an operating system designed to make Android much like Windows, especially in functionality. It supports the Google Play Store and thousands of Android applications, but also integrates a taskbar as in OS from Redmond, a file manager, the ability to run apps in windows, the combination of contextual menus to right click and more. Even it allows you to view the app mode smartphone, in a window that can be dragged around the screen. We have seen it work both on the tablet than on an AIO, and has an excellent reactivity and nice graphics. In short, it is an OS for everyone and is especially complimentary to partner companies.
Jide Remix Ultra Tablet, however, is a device well built, sturdy and also powerful, with a keyboard dock with magnetic coupling and a stand included in the rear cover. But is it really $ 399 in a time when you can buy Android tablet (and also Windows) to just over $ 100? Maybe.
Remix Ultra has an IPS display 11.6-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), Nvidia Tegra 4 processor, 2GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and a battery of 8100 mAh. Although its sheet is not the most current (SoC has a few years of life), the tablet of Jide is quite fast and powerful way to play, watch videos, surf the Internet and carry out any activities. It also has a bigger storage of those integrated in other low-cost tablet and, if 64GB were still few, you can always resort to a microSD card
