We’ve seen a ton of hybrid Android tablets that try really hard to be laptops. We’re okay with that trend, especially since the Android OS has such potential for customization. But, what if there were actually a fully functional Android PC experience? That’s the idea behind the Remix Mini.
The Remix Mini is a tiny device that’s being billed as the world’s “first true Android PC.” It’s powered by Remix OS, which allows users to work and play any and every Android app while still using PC features like a taskbar, multiple windows, mouse and keyboard support,and more. The power button isn’t hidden on the back of the device like a typical desktop PC, but instead, users simply touch the top of the Mini to have their computer up and running within seconds. The device is powered by the latest 64-bit chipset, and supports Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and USB. Of course, with a smaller device comes a smaller footprint, as it uses just 10 watts, which is significantly less than the average desktop PC (which uses anywhere from 60 to 240w). The Remix Mini is currently available on Kickstarter for an early bird backer price of $40 (for 2GB of Ram and 16GB storage). [Purchase]
