Razer 'Project Fiona' de Razer : PC Gaming Tablet Concept Design


During Spike and's Live 2012 CES All-Access broadcast, Razer revealed its newest gaming concept design – the Project Fiona PC Gaming Tablet. As described in the press release, Project Fiona is unlike other tablets designed for general use and casual gaming in that it is designed to play the most popular PC games of today with an intuitive control setup for a "phenomenal on-the-go gaming experience".

Powered by the third generation Intel Core i7 processor and featuring an all-new hybrid user interface scheme complete with integrated dual game controllers containing "ultra-precise" analog sticks (wow, that's a mouthful…), Project Fiona is targeting a Q4 2012 release with a retail price in the neighborhood of $1,000. The tablet also features ultra-precise accelerometers and a highly sensitive multi-touch screen to provide game developers with "new game experiential opportunities to develop around the hybrid game control experience offered by Project Fiona". According to Razer, it also ensures current-generation PC games run on the tablet concept, as well as any existing games optimized for the touchscreen interface of a tablet.

"While multi-touch screens have become the de facto user interface for tablets, they are not the right interface for serious PC gaming,” said Min-Liang Tan, CEO, Razer. “The user interface we have designed for Project Fiona allows all existing PC games to be played right out of the box and also provides game developers new opportunities as they develop next-gen games on a highly-intuitive platform. Both developers and gamers are going to love the new user interface that combines the best of a gamepad, multi-touch screen and accelerometers for an all-new gaming experience on-the-go.”
