Thanks to the Remix OS, users have access to the entire Android app ecosystem (over 1.5 million apps) while taking full advantage of intuitive PC features such as a start menu, a taskbar, multiple window multi-tasking, mouse and keyboard support. For ease of use, a capacitive touch power button on top of the Remix Mini will boot everything in working condition within seconds like on a tablet but extended with your traditional PC peripherals (any large screen you please among other things).

So, Jide Technology claims to offer a PC-like experience at a very low cost and open to all Android apps, but couldn't this have been done more cheaply by simply using an HDMI interface and some sort of hypervisor app on a smartphone to bring on-board that PC-feel? We asked the company.

"The purpose of Remix OS and Remix-based products is to do more than bring a PC-feel to smartphones. The idea is that there are certain functionalities and features that are better fit for larger screen devices. As such, Remix OS incorporates such features into a mobile operating system," said Jeff Zhao, international marketing manager at Jide Technology.
