Android is a great ecosystem, but sometimes it can’t be hard to use it for productivity means. For that, people usually resort to bigger device with an operating system that isn’t as ‘mobile’ as Android. But not everybody seems to believe that, and that’s why there’s now a Kickstarter project promoting a 11.6-inch Android-based tablet that is said to be made for those looking to use it productivity fields.
Remix is described as a ‘laptop experience on a big Android tablet’, and the team behind it has made both the hardware and the software. The stand-out feature of the operating system Remix OS is that it comes with a multi-windows user interface, allowing you to easily multi-task and switch between what you’re doing. The custom version of Android adds a taskbar and support for running apps in resizable windows.
This is a device that can run all the apps and games available in the Google Play Store, but also brings a multitasking feature similar to how a Windows notebook works. And, on top of that, it does look pretty nice, as well. The 2-in-1 tablet comes with an 11.6 inch display, a built-in dual-angle kickstand, and a wireless keyboard. Other features include a 1920 x 1080 pixel IPS display, an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor, 2GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a microSD card slot, an 8100 mAh battery, WiFi, and Bluetooth.
You can still get the tablet at a limited price of only $349, which is still $50 less than its retail price. With 28 days still left to go, they have already surpassed the crowdfunding goal of $100,000. The hybrid does come with some interesting features and if you’re all about mobile productivity, I say it’s worth a try.
