A technology startup that goes by the name Jide has announced its new Android Tablet dubbed Ultra, which they are hoping will stand out among the numerous tablets available on the market presently. The company intend to capture consumers with its set of premium features which were designed to get more work done.
Jide’s Ultra tablet runs on a custom version of the Android operating system called Remix OS, which was designed to look similar to Windows. The Remix OS features a taskbar, it offers support for running apps in sizable windows and a theme that resembles Windows 8. Some noteworthy specifications includes an 11.6-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels, its powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor with 2GB of RAM, plus 64GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot for expansion.
Jide is a technology startup which was founded by three former Google employees. Even though the Remix OS is an heavily modified version of Android 4.4, it does offer access to the Google Play Store and other Google apps as well. The team behind it also plans to update the Remix OS to be based off Android 5.0 in the near future. They also plan to license the Remix OS to other tablet makers, which means we could see more Windows clone tablets on the market in the near future.
There’s also WiFi 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity plus a front and rear camera for video chatting and selfies. The tablet ships with keyboard cover that also acts as a stand, and connects to the tablet via magnets.
