Razer to take ‘Project Fiona’ gaming tablet idea to the next step

Razer Project: Fiona

By on October 8, 2012 at 6:17 pm

Razer’s ‘Project Fiona‘ has always been a strange one: a gaming tablet powered by some of the best mobile hardware possible, and built into a system that incorporates a controller split onto either side of the main screen. Organised over Facebook, the company asked its fans last Wednesday for 10,000 Likes in order to start working on it, and the fans delivered.

Now, Razer are set to move ahead with the project. “We’ve been working on it since (the reveal) and have narrowed down a couple of key concepts/designs. We would like to reach out to the community to see the level of interest before we actually launch it,” reads the Facebook post. “We’d like to hear how you would like to design the actual tablet right here on the Razer Facebook Page, as well as take suggestions for specs, form factor, pricing, features etc.”

Razer has previously tested consumer interest in a similar fashion on a left-handed Naga mouse, which was received very positively. The company then went on to make the product and now, according to Polygon, sells them — even though it’s at a loss. Good stuff.

It would be massively overpriced though and thus, not worth all the trouble…

 

I’d never buy it. I’m not even really interested in any handheld consoles.
Competition is always good though I guess.

 

not a terrible idea, but Razer will price themselves out of the market.

I was thinking something like this would be good in an attachable controller form, mount on to your favourite 9+” Android tablet and play affair. Be a lot cheaper too.
