Razer were just getting started earlier when they announced the Razer Naga Hex. The big Razer reveal at this year’s CES is Project Fiona, a concept PC gaming tablet.
The device which looks like an iPad2 with a couple PlayStation navigation controllers attached is slated to use Microsoft’s Windows 8 with a custom user interface.
The device will cost roughly $1,000 but will come with a lot more than your average tablet. Battery life will likely be comparable with laptops, sound will blast with Dolby 7.1 surround, and force feedback will be included to enhance the gaming experience.
Games such as FireFall, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, and Rift will all run on the device straight out of the box with no need for a port, although some custom controls may need to be included to get the most out of Trion’s MMORPG.
- Hybrid user interface for PC gaming
- Intel Core i7
- 10.1″ 1280×800 display
- Full-screen user interface supporting multi-touch
- 3-axis gyro, magnetometer, accelerometer
- Force feedback
- Dolby 7.1 surround sound
- WiFi 802.11b/g/n
- Bluetooth® 3.0
You may notice that details of a graphics chip are bizarrely missing from the above list with Razer’s CES reps apparently very coy on the subject. Whatever is powering the tablet’s visuals will have to hold some power with CEO, Min-Liang Tan stating that players can load up and play Battlefield 3 on the device.
Razer are now taking feedback on the device over on their Facebook page, if the reaction is good then we could see a retail release by the end of 2012.
