Jide Remix, the Android-based Surface tablet wannabe, is now available on Amazon
Interested in getting a Surface-like tablet that's not made by Microsoft and doesn't run Windows? Well then, meet the Jide Remix, a slate that's now available to buy via Amazon.

Announced in January this year, the Jide Remix was recently part of a successful Kickstarter campaign that allowed early backers to purchase it at low prices. If you didn't get the chance to order a Jide Remix from Kickstarter, Amazon is now selling it for $399.99.

Like Microsoft's Surface slates, the Jide Remix is presented as a tablet that can replace your laptop, thanks to the fact that it offers a 11.6-inch 1080p display, a detachable magnetic keyboard, a kickstand, and Remix OS (based on Android KitKat, this includes a taskbar, file manager, and multiple windows). The Jide Remix also features two 5 MP cameras, a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4 processor clocked at 1.8 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 64 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 8100 mAh battery.

Based in China, Jide was founded in 2014 by three ex-Google engineers. Later this year, the company plans to release Remix OS 1.5, which will be based on Android Lollipop.

So, who's looking forward to buying a Jide Surface Remix?
