Remix Mini

Remix Mini Is an Android Desktop for Under Rs.

Today, we came across the Remix Mini , an Android based mini-PC. The company
behind the Remix - Beijing-based Jide Tech - has created an OS it calls Remix OS, which
is based on Android, but is heavily customised to give you desktop features such as a
taskbar, and multi-window multi-tasking. Remix OS is designed to be used with a mouse
and keyboard, running on the big screen. At the same time, it's based on Android, and
you'll be using Android apps to get things done.

This might have seemed like a bad idea even a year ago, but there's a pretty good
collection of apps on Android that take care of most productivity tasks, and there is also
no shortage of fun little games you can play even without a touchscreen.
But perhaps the most appealing aspect of the Remix is the price - early bird backers
could get the Remix 1GB version at just $20 (approximately Rs. 1,275). You can still get
it at $30, or under Rs. 2,000. And if you want, you can get the 2GB RAM and 16GB
storage version, at $40 (approximately Rs. 2,500).
As the Remix creators point out in the Kickstarter pitch, most people are spending a lot
more just to check email and watch YouTube videos. If you're looking for a very basic
computer, then why do you need to spend a huge amount of money on it?
The Remix Mini is powered by a 1.2GHz 64-bit quad-core processor, and the 1GB
model comes with 8GB of storage, while the 2GB model comes with 16GB of storage.
Both come with USB ports to connect an external HDD, and also include a microSD port.

There's an HDMI port to connect your display, Wi-Fi, and an Ethernet port, along with a
3.5mm jack to connect your headphones or speakers.
Another problem we had with some of the Android based Kickstarter projects has been
that by the time the product is delivered, Android has marched on and the hardware is
significantly behind the curve. Remix is supposed to be delivered anywhere in the world
by October 2015 - if the company can actually meet this deadline, then the Remix Mini
desktop sounds like a pretty good buy in our view.
