You have probably already rolled your eyes at the notion of Kickstarted tablets. I know that we have seen plenty go by the wayside, but Jide Technology is taking a different method of attack: Everyone who backs is going to get one.
As stated by their press release sent to me this morning,
(emphasis added)Jide Technology is set to run the campaign with a singular goal of finding passionate innovators and early adopters who want to become a part of their first community of users. To build this community from the ground up, they plan to give all their backers, no matter which tier they pledge, a Remix ultra-table. Retail price on the Android device will be $399. The lowest reward tier is set to start at $39. In essence, they are giving away hardware and asking for help in making the next version of their software fresh and inspired by their community.
This is an interesting tactic, and it certainly makes it stand out. There are no additional details about terms so it will be interesting to see how this plays out when the Kickstarter campaign launches next Wednesday. But I am hopeful: at best this could turn out to be an amazing deal for the backers, and at worst, a very low-risk opportunity to discover that it might not be your cup of tea.
