Powered by a 64-bit chipset, the Remix Mini runs on Remix OS 2.0, an engineered version of Android Lollipop.

While the palm-sized device is positioned to provide a cost effective computing solution to the rising number of global entrepreneurs and small business owners, it is initially being targeted at consumers in the Philippines, according to Ben Chan, International Sales Manager of China-based Jide Technology.

Chan says the Remix OS allows users to work and play with the entire Android app ecosystem while taking full advantage of intuitive PC features such as a taskbar, multiple window multi-tasking, mouse and keyboard support, and more. “What’s more, it requires roughly 6-10 times less power to run than an average tower desktop PC,” says Chan.
