Razer details its Project Fiona at CES

Gaming tablet


While the Switchblade concept and Blade gaming notebook were first signs that Razer is making a push into new markets, the new Project Fiona tablet certainly confirms it. We are bound to call it a concept, but Razer claims that Project Fiona is certainly much more as there are solid plans that this PC gaming tablet shows up in the second half of this year.

The details regarding the new PC gaming tablet are still scarce but some pieces of info managed to find its way online claiming that this 10.1-inch 1280x800 tablet with integrated nunchuk-like controllers might pack Intel's Core i7 Ivy Bridge CPU, and those game titles previewed in the official trailer and some live action video certainly shows it packs quite a decent punch.

Currently, beside the Intel Core i7 and 10-inch 1280x800 screen specs, Razer's official site for Project Fiona also lists full-screen user interface supporting multi-touch, 3-axis gyro, magnetometer and accelerometer, force feedback, Dolby 7.1 surround sound and Bluetooth 3.0 and WiFi 802.11bgn WiFi. Razer also noted that it should ship with Windows 8 OS.

A couple of key things like battery life, precise date or the estimated price weren't revealed by Razer but some sites overheard talk of a sub-$1,000 price tag. Razer also noted that, unlike the Switchblade concept, Project Fiona is a prototype rather than concept and it might show up sometime in second half of this year.

If Razer were smart they would put in a fusion hybrid crossfire setup.

Nunchuck controllers are a great idea for this gaming tablet.

But if this goes to production, please make them detachable.

Quoting grndzro:

I was thinking the same, on one hand this design for a gaming tablet is basically perfect, but if you're going to make an x86 based mobile gaming device, how can you not consider Fusion? Obviously the I7 is a good CPU, but power friendly gaming, or gaming at all... I know they're going to use an nVidia card, but meh, they would be able to use the APU's GPU and the dedicated in Hybrid Crossfire with Fusion, within the same power use. It just seems the more obvious choice.
