[Coming up] Jide Remix Ultra Tablet.

You might have heard about the three ex-Googlers teaming up and providing us with a Ultra tablet called Jide Remix.
The announcement made on Kickstarter last week caused quite a stir and also triggered a couple of scams on Indiegogo .
The Jide Remix Ultra tablet is aimed on productivity and entertainment.
Being Android powered and coming with a physical keyboard and kickstand one realizes that there are not many competitors on that specific market segment.
Jide recons one should not only provide the software but also good hardware.
Teaming up with Foxconn for the hardware parts produces a promising result.
Jide Team announced the Kickstarter for a mere 39$ per device for the first 200 backers, with a condition to have backers "Use the stuffing out of it".
So whats the fuzz about then ?


Looking at the hardware:

  • Weigh :890g
  • 11,6 Full HD IPS 10 Point touch screen.
  • 1920x1080p
  • Nvidia Tegra 4+1 A15 Processor 1,81 Ghz
  • GPU Tegra GPU Geforce ULP 72
  • Wifi 2,4/5 Ghz 
  • 2 GB DDR3 RAM
  • 64 GB eMMC internal storage
  • Expandable microSD card slot supporting 128GB 
  • Micro USB and also Adapter for USB to micro USB included.
  • Full size keyboard with touchpad and magnetic connector, also doubling as a screen cover.
  • Kickstand with 40/80 degree angles.

...and much much more of course.

Then theres the Remix OS of course , giving life to this hardware .
Supporting multi window mode, a customized taskbar and what appears to be a device for productivity and entertainment the Jide Remix Ultra Tablet will claim its own ground out there.
And looking at the already done and published reviews there will propably not be any shortcomings to the promises made by the Jide Team.
