Everything about the Jide Remix ultra-tablet: another success in crowdfunding campaigns

It is shown again that there is a special interest of the users for the different proposals, those that go out of the norm and bet on a concept of tablet to which we are not accustomed. And it demonstrates again thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign, this time carried out by the Jide company, founded by three former Google workers, in Kickstarter to finance the Remix ultra-tablet, an Android tablet that seeks to compete in some way with Surface Pro 3 and the rest of the productive tablets that are or will be on the market.
This case inevitably reminds us of the Jolla Tablet, developed by former Nokia employees in this case and whose main difference was in the Sailfish OS operating system. They managed to overcome their goal in Indiegogo in a matter of hours and closed the campaign with almost five times what they initially requested, which allowed them to further improve their product for the launch. The story is repeated with the Remix ultra-tablet, presented during the last CES Las Vegas and that he recently started his campaign on Kickstarter.
The goal was to reach $ 100,000 and two days later, the amount accumulated rubs the $ 120,000 and there are still 28 days ahead. Jeremy Chau, David Ko and Ben Luk, the three names behind this project pointed high and the response has been massive. More than 700 donations that correspond to units of the Remix ultra-tablet. As we told you a few days ago, the first 355 could be obtained at a price of 39 dollars! You can imagine that they flew, like the next 200 at the price of $ 199. 145 more have paid $ 349 and will continue at this price, which remains quite attractive, up to 500 units. As of today, no one has donated $ 3,000 or $ 5,000 although the option exists and includes another series of rewards such as a trip to the company's factories.
