Google, despite its capabilities, has not made a real move to bring the Android system into desktops. Perhaps this was to eliminate the competition for Chrome OS. So instead, it has been Jide Technology that has been bridging the gap between an Android OS and PCs. Jide redesigned Android to fit the display and format of a PC and is continuing to move forward.
Gaining some momentum, Jide Technology has now released a 2-in-1 tablet, called the Remix Pro. According to Yahoo!, the Remix Pro will be the first device to support Remix OS, which is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The tablet will have a 12-inch display with 2,160 x 1,440 pixels resolution. The gadget will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 octa-core processor, 32GB of storage and 3GB of RAM. A microSD card slot is present as well should users need more storage space.
As Tom's Hardware reports, the Remix Pro 2-in-1 will first be released on the Chinese market, with availability coming to other countries soon after.
Jide has also started a partnership with Acer and the two companies will make the Remix OS compatible with the Acer Aspire ES1-131. The Acer Aspire will have sport a 11.6" 1366 x 768 screen and an Intel Celeron N3150/4-ccore/1.50GHz CPU. It will have 4GM RAM of memory and as much as 500GB of internal storage. All in all, the unit will weigh just 1.25 kg and will take up just 291mm x 211 mm x 21.2 mm of space.
The Remix OS PC Box OEM solution has also been released by Jide. Its CPU is Amlogic S905/4-core/64 Byte/ARM Cortex - A53/2GHz. It comes with the option of 1GB or 2GB of memory, and either 8GB or 16GB of internal storage. Again, there is a slot for microSD cards should users need extra space, until 128GB.
Jide will also be coming out with three all-in-one PCs that run on Remix OS. Screen sizes vary from 22, 24 and 32 inches.
