Remix OS is a custom engineered version of Android Lollipop for PCs. In simple terms, it is Android re-engineered for use on a PC. For Android lovers, this means you get to use your favourite apps on a large screen with a keyboard and mouse. It sorts of reminds me of what Microsoft is doing with Continuum for Windows 10.
Say Hello to the first Android PC, Remix Mini
What the guys behind Remix OS have done is built the first Android PC, so it is easy for anyone to get started with Remix OS. To be more specific, they have built the first Android-based PC box, and a portable, sexy looking one at that. Here is what it looks like:
Yes; that is what is at the core of Remix PC. You buy a monitor, keyboard and mouse, hook them up to it so you get this to work with:
All cool; isn’t it? For one, you can carry your PC around with you from home to the office, so long as you have a monitor, keyboard and mouse waiting at both ends. Again, it all reminds me of Windows Continuum, which I use quite a bit.
What Is In the Remix PC Box?
If the technicalities interest you, Remix Mini is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core 64-bit processor, 1GB RAM , 8GB storage (there is an alternative 2GB RAM + 16GB model), and a capacitive touch power button, completely eliminating all moving parts. It also comes equipped with WiFi, Ethernet, Bluetooth, HDMI port and two USB 2.0 ports.
Now you know what Remix OS is all about and how Remix Mini works. We will be getting our hands on one and give it a spin, so expect all the juicy details of how it performs in everyday use from us here at MobilityArena.com. Oh! If you have a spare PC lying around and love a bit of adventure, you can download Remix OS for PC Beta Version, install and have fun already.
Whatever path you choose to go with Remix OS, do ask your questions, add any extra info you have about it, or just tell us what you think of the whole thing. Cheers!
