The Microsoft Surface is one of the best attempts at a hybrid tablet/laptop we’ve seen in the last few years. It’s thin, powerful, portable, and has a keyboard that doesn’t add any bulk. The only problem for some people is that it runs Windows. Three ex-Google engineers have solved that problem.
They call it the Remix tablet, but it may as well just be called Microsoft Surface for Android. It has the same flip-out kickstand on the back and a super thin magnetically attachable keyboard. It runs a special version of Android called Remix OS, which looks a lot like someone combined Chrome OS, Android Lollipop, and “Metro.” It can even run side-by-side apps.
How does it compare with specs? The Remix tablet has a 11.6-inch 1920×1080 display, 2GB of RAM, and a Nvidia Tegra 4+1 processor. They plan to release the Remix tablet later this year in the US for $350. Unless, of course, Microsoft has something to say about that. Would you buy a Microsoft Surface with Android?
