Razer, the black-and-green loving peripheral company, has just announced Project Fiona – a “PC Gaming Concept Tablet.” The tablet, which was revealed at CES, is powered by an Intel Core i7 processor, although specific details are currently unknown. While it looks more like a tablet than anything else, Razer boasts that the device is much closer in power to a modern PC.
Project Fiona is, apparently, focused squarely on PC gamers. The system uses a “hybrid user interface scheme” to incorporate dual controllers and analog sticks. It also has an accelerometer, as well as a multi-touch screen. Likewise, the controller sticks on the side are able to provide force feedback.
As can be expected from any PC platform, the device will play any game right out of the box, with obvious extra support for any title that can take advantage of a traditional gamepad. Razer hopes to ship the product by Q4 of this year with a price point under $1,000.
Check out a video of Project Fiona after the break.
While I can’t exactly imagine any PC gamers trading their traditional setups for gamepads, it will be impossible to have a solid opinion until I actually am able to get my own hands on the device.
