Razer has some great gaming peripherals but the company's full gaming systems aren't having the same success. The company's gaming laptop was a flop because it was ridiculously expensive, and it seems that Razer's upcoming Project Fiona will suffer the same fate.
Originally teased in January 2012 as a sub-$1,000 tablet slated to hit the market in Q4 2012, the Windows 8 tablet is now estimated to be in the $1,299 to $1,499 price range. Here's an overview of the tablet's specification as shared on Facebook by Razer, but it's all quite generic:
a) CPU: Intel Core i5 or i7
b) GPU: Mid Tier Discrete GPU (Hardcore PC gaming on the go at Medium Settings)
Thickness/Weight: Up to double the thickness/weight of an iPad
d) Other features: Detachable/Removable Controllers
e) Price: US$1299-US$1499.
The company did not provide an update regarding the expected launch date, but a Q4 2012 launch is extremely unlikely given the lack of detailed specifications and the fact that it's already half-way December. Guess we'll have to wait until Q1 2013, if not later, to see this tablet in action. The design looks pretty decent, but the price level is hard to justify.
