Razer have used this year’s CES to reveal that their ‘Project Fiona’ tablet, which they asked 10,000 people to ‘Like’ on Facebook, is set to move into production and will now be re-branded as the ‘Razer Edge’.
The tech specs for the device have also been revealed. It will come in two versions, a standard (starting at $999) and a Pro (not priced). The standard model comes with an Intel® Core™ i5 processor, NVIDIA GT640M LE GPU, 4 GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 64 GB SSD. Meanwhile, the Pro version comes replete with an upgraded Intel® Core™ i7 processor, NVIDIA GT640M LE GPU, 8 GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 128 GB or 256 GB SSD.
The Pro will be offered as part of a bundle which includes a Gamepad Controller (which you can see in the picture), turning the Edge into a “mobile console”. The controller is priced at $249. Other accessories include an optional Keyboard Dock (coming in Q3, not priced) an Extended Battery ($69, doubles battery life) and a Docking Station which “serves as a full desktop and charging resource with three USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI 1.4 port, mic-in and stereo-out”. That’ll set you back another $99.
Both models are expected to be available in Q1 of this year.
