Jide Technology was founded by a trio of ex-google engineers with a mission to unlock the potentials of Android which is something google has neglected. Recently, Android Nigeria had an interview with David Ko, one of the co-founders of Jide Technology. Please find the interview below:
The Remix Mini was designed to use the latest mobile technology to make productive Android computing accessible and affordable to people everywhere, particularly in emerging markets. We realized that people spend most of their computer time browsing the internet, sending emails and watching videos. Yet they sometimes spend more than N100,000 on large, expensive, power-inefficient computers that are prone to viruses and costly software. The Remix Mini consumes 1/20th the power of a typical tower PC, is a fraction of the cost, and allows you to enjoy low-cost and free Android apps with a desktop experience.
The Mini consumes 1/20th the power of a typical PC. Since you are using Android apps on the Mini, it is cheaper software than the expensive programs that you have to buy for a typical PC. It uses the latest mobile technology to bring down the cost of purchasing a computer and maintaining it.
DK: Nigeria is one of the most exciting markets in Africa, with an entrepreneurial culture, a vibrant tech scene and the ability to set trends throughout the region. We are very optimistic about the prospects of tech in Nigeria in the long-run and understand that the government would like to diversify the economy.
