Former Google Engineers Create Microsoft Surface Rip-off Tablet Running Android OS

Jeremy Zhou, David Ko, and Ben Luk are former engineers at Google and in 2014 they collaborated and created the Jide Technology. Their first product has just been made official calling it Remix and label it as an ultra tablet. The device's design is very similar to Microsoft Surface Pro tablet including the iconic magnetically attached keyboard and kickstand, the only difference is it's running Android OS instead of a Windows one. 

The Remix tablet features an 11.6-inch Full HD Display powered by a 1.8GHz Nvidia Tegra 4+1 processor and 2GB of RAM. On the inside is a 64GB flash and it's not clear yet if the slate supports microSD card for memory expansion. Most likely it does, but I could be wrong. As for its cameras there are 5MP for both the front and back. The device has its own operating system which the company calls Remix OS which is basically a forked version of the Android 4.4.2. Battery is 8,100mAh size.

Jide Remix specs:

- 11.6" Full HD Display
- 1920 x 1080 resolution
- 1.8GHz Nvidia Tegra 4+1 processor
- 64GB internal storage
- 5MP rear camera
- 5MP front camera
- 802.11 a/b/g/n
- Remix OS based on Android 4.4 Kitkat
- 8,100mAh battery

Jide says it will debut in China then followed by US and UK in the second or third quarter of the year for price starting at $349 with different color selections.
