The gaming company Razer is working again to bring PC gaming to a new form factor, this time with Project Fiona, which aims to use the Windows tablet environment to appeal to gaming enthusiasts.
Still just a prototype, Project Fiona details are limited, but according to Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan, the device will pack a Core-i7 Ivy Bridge processor and will support Windows 8. Additionally, the tablet will sport a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and have an Android OS overlay. The device will also feature a multi-touch screen, THX-certified speakers, force feedback support equipped with vibration motors in controller arms, front- and rear-facing cameras and a battery life estimated to be similar to that of an Ultrabook.
While no specs are certain as of yet, the target price for Project Fiona hardware falls under the $1000 mark, though there’s been no mention of what the 10.1-inch display will be made of.
Razer introduced the Switchblade prototype at CES last year, which later developed into the Razer Blade, a proper gaming laptop that was not met enthusiastically by gamers due to netbook-focused innards. Despite Project Fiona only being a concept right now, Razer expects the gaming device will hit shelves before the end of this year.
