Jide, the company behind the desktop styled Android fork Remix OS, has announced a partnership with display manufacturer AOC to launch a 24-inch all-in-one (AIO) PC powered by its Remix OS for the first time. The Remix OS-powered desktop device, aimed at China’s enterprise market, was officially announced at CES Asia in Shanghai, China yesterday.
This isn’t a powerful computer by any stretch of the imagination (nor is it the first all-in-one device to run Android, or a variant thereof), but it’s still interesting to see what Jide is doing with its software as this latest device aims to bring Android to enterprise as well as home users.[irp]
This partnership shows off the potential of Android PCs, by putting Remix OS into another form factor. In fact, it was based on interest from enterprises that encouraged us to develop this device with AOC. Again, our community of users have been spreading our story and again, we advance Android PCs because of their support.” – Jeremy Chau, Co-Founder of Jide Technology.
We’re really excited about this partnership with Jide Technology and Remix OS because we believe the AIO will go far in bringing Android PCs to the enterprise market. The cost savings, the familiarity and the productivity experience you get with the AOC Remix OS AIO will really be advantages for enterprise users.” – Ren Jingshun, AOC’s B2B General Manager
