Why Tablets Are the Future of Computing

The conventional wisdom about tablet computers — that as a category, they're no longer all that compelling, and might even be dying out — is wrong. It isn't that this analysis is irrational, because it comes straight from the available empirical data. It's just that it ignores important trends that have implications for much of personal computing. Taken together, they add up to this: As notebook computers become thinner and lighter and add touch interfaces, they will, I predict, increasingly come with keyboards that are detachable ...

Meet the $30 Android PC made by 3 ex-Googlers

Three ex-Google employees have launched a $30 PC runs on Google's mobile operating system, Android, after raising more than $1.6 million in a crowdfunding campaign to get the project going. The Remix Mini, which fits into the palm of your hand, is being billed as the "world's first true Android PC" by Jide Technology, the company behind the project that was founded last year. "The idea is that we want to make sure it's affordable and accessible," David Ko, one of Jide's co-founders and an ex-Googler, told CNBC by phone. "A lot of people are ...

Yes, Microsoft should drop Windows Mobile for Android and buy Jide Remix OS

Having used Remix OS for over a year, it's clear to me that this variant of Android is tailor-made for Microsoft. It's a full version of Android that has been designed to look and work much like Windows, right down to a file manager and familiar taskbar. Throw in the ability to run apps in windows on tablets and it's perfect for the Windows brand ...

How Remix's Android will eat the world

Which platform will the next billion people on the internet use? Is it more likely to be Microsoft’s Windows squeezed onto low-cost mobile hardware, or a mobile OS given some steroids? Three former Google executives are betting it's the latter ...

Meet Jide's Remix OS: Android on the desktop done right

AT A TIME when we're spending so much of our energy moaning about a certain operating system, it's nice to be able to say something positive rather than just tell you what not to buy. Enter Remix OS, the answer to a problem that even Google has repeatedly failed to solve: how to bring the overwhelming popularity of Android to the desktop ...

Jide Remix OS Entering Beta As Company Matures Focus

Remix OS might just make you want to put Android on your laptop

Earlier this year at CES we were introduced to Remix OS — an Android variant from Jide that turns Google's mobile operating system into a desktop OS. Remix takes basic Android and adds all the elements you'd expect on a PC or Mac: there's support for mice and keyboards, a windowed interface, a file manager, system bar, and a dock at the bottom of the screen for your apps. And because it's based on Android, it already has a load of apps ready to use — from Facebook and Microsoft Word to Clash of Clans and Candy Crush Saga ...

This thing just became the first Chinese startup ever to break $1M on Kickstarter

If you're a fan of tiny computers, you're probably already familiar with the various flavors of Raspberry Pi. But there's a new cheap and tiny computer in town, and its name is the Remix Mini. The Remix Mini is the brainchild of Beijing-based startup Jide Tech, which launched its first Kickstarter – an Android-based tablet called the Remix – back in March. That project did well, raising more than US$200,000. But things really exploded when Jide launched the Remix Mini project in mid-July. The company set a modest $10,000 goal for the project. So far, it has raised more than US$1.1 million ...

The Backed Pack: Remix Mini brings Android to a tiny $30 Windows-like PC

Once upon a time, in a land before laptops, towering desktop PCs peppered the landscape, their hulking shells loaded with all manner of cards and drives dependent on support from the operating systems of their day. The Remix Mini PC shows how the desktop has evolved in an era of mobile hardware and software. The elongated dish-like device, which makes the Mac mini look large in comparison, is devoid of buttons. (It turns on with a touch to its top surface.). Its rear is only slightly less minimalist — with two USB ports, an HDMI connector for a monitor, a microSD slot and ...

Jide Tech Created The Beautiful, PC-Optimized Version Of Android That Google Wouldn't

A new Kickstarter-born startup by the name of Jide Tech launched a mini-PC that uses a beautiful custom version of Android, perfectly optimized for the PC form factor. The company seems to be years ahead of Google -- which hasn't shown great interest to build more PC-like features into Android so far. Android on PCs hasn't had much success, mainly because nobody has given it an honest try. Most of the attempts we've seen so far were at best slight modifications of the tablet interface (itself not that different from the phone interface) put on a much larger screen, while still working as if it were a tablet ...

If you've ever felt that your desktop is too big, too complicated or too ugly, and you have $30 burning a hole in your pocket, the Remix Mini might just pique your interest. Ex-Google employees Jide Tech have come up with a very small and attractive Kickstarter project for those looking to experience the of simplicity of Android on a big screen, along with full keyboard and mouse support and PC-class connectivity. The Remix Mini takes the form of a very minimalist black pebble, that plugs into your monitor or TV and runs Remix OS 1.5, a modified version of Android. Remix OS is designed to blend traditional desktop functionality with ...

Ex-Googlers launch Jide Remix "ultra-tablet" with customized Android OS

Tablets mostly took a back seat at CES this year, but there were still a few interesting announcements that came from Vegas, including one from a new company called Jide. Founded by some former Google senior engineers, the company introduced its Remix "ultra-tablet" with the promise that it would improve the productivity of those using the Android OS. In fact, one of its founders is quoted in the company's press release as saying Android tablets "are terrible at getting real work done." Jide has created the Remix experience to improve that work experience, both in its hardware and its software ...
