The predominant tablet trend nowadays maybe towards being lighter, slimmer, squarer and smaller. That’s why we’ve seen lots of compact tablets such as the iPad mini, the Google Nexus 9, the Nokia N1 tablet and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 are being released. However, Jide, a technology company based in Beijing, is going the opposite direction. It recently released an 11.6-inch tablet called the REMIX Ultra, which is also the tablet we’re reviewing today.
If you haven’t heard of Jide Technology, it was a software company founded by three ex-Google engineers with a mission to unlock the potential of Android in order to accelerate a new age of computing. According to Jide, their vision is to make Android a more productive operating system that may someday be introduced to our PCs, and REMIX OS is the key to that vision.
After testing the Jide REMIX Ultra tablet, it’s easy to conclude that it is the closest thing available to replace both your tablet and your ultrabook. That said, the relatively high price could be a sore spot for many users on the fence deciding between it and a notebook — the suggested price for the 64GB version of the Jide REMIX Ultra tablet is $439 (with keyboard included).
