Rii Mini i28 – backlit QWERTY Keyboard, TouchPad, Air Mouse, Gamepad and Headset
There are many 2.4 GHz “magic” remote, often called Air mice, to use with Android devices or computer. They usually comes with a qwerty keyboard, and a gyro that allow you to move the mouse pointer on the screen by moving the remote around, and are much more convenient that a standard IR remote with Android mini PCs. Newer models such as Mele F10 Pro often include a microphone, and a jack to connect an headphone, but Rii Mini i28 is going a few steps further, some may even say a few steps too far, as it features a backlit QWERTY keyboard, Air mouse function, a microphone and a headphone jack, as well as a touchpad, and some of controls that make it look like a gamepad (No analog though).
