Jide Technology strives to “unlock the potential of Android in order to accelerate a new age of computing,” according to the company’s site. Its chief reflection of this philosophy is Remix OS, which is Android reimagined for the desktop. The OS sports keyboard shortcut support, Windows-like windows management tools and an Android Marshmallow-inspired flat, clean design.

The OS, which is a tweaked version of Android Lollipop, can be installed on most desktops, but the Remix Mini is the company’s push into the budget computing market.

“Most people spend most of their computer time browsing the internet, sending emails and watching videos. Yet you have to spend more than R10 000 or R20 000 to buy a bulky, heavy, energy‐inefficient computer running expensive software you barely use,” explains Jide Technology co-founder David Ko.

“By using the Remix Mini, which fits in the palm of your hand, you can make savings of money that you can redirect to investing on other needs for your business.”

The Remix Mini sports a quad-core AllWinner CPU, up to 2GB of RAM and up to 16GB of internal storage. There’s a microSD card slot for expansion, two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI out port, Ethernet, a 3.5mm headphone out, WiFi and Bluetooth.

The Remix Mini will be available on Takealot at the introductory price for a limited time, where after it will retail for R1199.
