Razer has finally presented the final stage of Project Fiona at CES 2013. The Razer Edge gaming tablet, with its HD 10.1 inch display, Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GPU, doubles as a Windows 8 console. It also has a controller dock, but the Razer Edge is anything but cheap.
The Razer Edge Gaming-Tablet comes with a 10.1 inch display with a 1366×768 resolution, the Nvidia GT640M LE GPU and 4 to 8 GB RAM and 64, 128 or 256 GB SSDs onboard. The device also has USB 3.0, Bluetooth and USB 3.0. Razer can have the Intel Core i5 (1.7 GHz) for $999, or for $1299, a Pro-Version with the 1.9 GHz Intel Core i7 Processor. The Razer Edge aka “Project Fiona” should be available shortly after Q1 2013.
The controller controls were once part of the tablet, but its now an optional controller dock for $ 249. Besides the controller dock there is a keyboard dock, battery packs and a docking station with three USB 2.0 ports and an HDMI output. Razer promises that there are a number of different operating modes, which have been adjusted for the respective docks. But oddly, the controller dock will not come to market at the same time as the tablet. Instead, it will only appear in the third quarter and it’s possible that it could even be changed because the design still isn’t complete.
