Razer says that the tablet is running Windows 7 at CES, but will adopt a customized version of Android or perhaps Windows 8 when (and if) it comes to market.
As well as packing a powerful punch, the tablet comes with dual-joystick control, Dolby 7.1 surround sound, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0. The slate, which is the first tablet to be THX-certified, also features front and rear facing cameras.
Razer stressed that the tablet is only a prototype at this stage, but hopes to have a tablet based on the Project Fiona concept available on the market in Q4 for the rather hefty cost of $1,000.
'This first-of-its-kind PC gaming tablet with integrated dual controllers is definitely not for playing casual games about unhappy birds or zombie-killing flora,' said a Razer spokesman, in one of the more colourful statements during CES.
Razer has a fine history in the portable gaming arena, and showcased the Switchblade gaming laptop concept at last year’s show. This design was developed into the Blade laptop, with the firm expecting to take orders for the device later this month.
Should the Project Fiona make it to market, the tablet could offer considerable competition to Sony's PS Vita gaming tablet, while also potentially challenging the nature of casual and console gaming.
This thing is a beast! Check it running skyrim folks!
I'm at the opposite spectrum. I think that's an idea worse than the Vita which makes it impressive in it's badness. Don't get me wrong the tech is impressive enough but as a product it gets a thumbs down for me.
Well, that's going to be expensive AND will be outdated by PC standards 1.5-2 years after purchase at the latest. I'll stick with the Wii U for HD tablet gaming.
Wait, how did the Wii U get involved in this discussion? lol classic EdEN. BTW I just watched the Wii U Zelda presentation from CES, incredible to say the least. As for the tablet thingy, sorry Jason but that thing is UGGGGLY!
