Commenting on the launch, Sandeep Parasrampuria (CEO and Director, iBall) said:
We are pleased to be the first brand in India to introduce ‘Remix OS’ to Tablet PCs. The question for several in mind is Why Remix OS? Well, people find it easier to do a task right from their Android smartphone. Moreover, many popular apps are working on Android like Instagram, WhatsApp etc. which are not as simple in web as in the phones. ‘Remix OS’ has the ability to run the Android OS as a fully functional desktop. Pioneering the next chapter of the Android journey, Remix OS enhances Android with productivity.
David Ko, Co-Founder, Jide Technology, said:
Jide Technology is excited to be partnering with iBall, the leading Indian Tablet PC brand, to bring Remix OS to this key strategic market for Jide Technology. The next billion people coming online for the first time will be in emerging markets like India using Android smartphones. As they move from being consumers of content to building, editing and creating for work, they will want to use their familiar Android app ecosystem with a true desktop experience for business, education and home entertainment.
