Jide Remix Ultra Android Tablet Looks Like A Surface Clone

Three ex-Google engineers have built a fancy new Android tablet, and it bears a pretty striking resemblance to Microsoft’s Surface Pro—not that we’re complaining. Dubbed the Remix Ultra, the tablet sports an 11-inch screen and a pretty handy kickstand that can be extended to 40 and 80 degrees. Oh, and you can also magnetically attach a keyboard, meaning the device can turn into a workhorse if you so prefer.

Here are some of the specs: NVIDIA processor (not confirmed if Tegra 3 or Tegra 4), 2GB of RAM, 5-megapixel rear and front-facing cameras, 11.6-inch 1080p IPS display and Android 4.4.2 with a skin overlay called Remix OS. The modified skin is meant to look more like a typical desktop, but with access to mobile apps right from Google Play. It’ll also feature multi-window support, giving it productivity superpowers.

Other specs include 16GB or 64GB of expandable storage (up to 128GB), and a proprietary 4-pin charger. It’s not going to overpower anything that’s currently on the market, but it’ll certainly get the job done, and the design is pretty slick.

Jide, the company that created the Remix Ultra, says the device is currently in production, and will initially be targeted at the Chinese market starting at $349. No specific launch date was shared, but it sounds like it’ll be available very soon. The company said the device will eventually come to the U.S. and U.K. sometime in Q2 or Q3.
