Razer Teases Final Project Fiona Hardware Specs

By - Source: Razer via Facebook | B 21 comments

Razer revealed a general list of specs for the upcoming Project Fiona gaming tablet.

Over on Facebook, Razer CEO and "chief gamer" Min-Liang Tan is now giving away three Project Fiona units. To receive one of these gaming tablets, simply like the gadget on this Facebook page, and then share it with your friends. He has also revealed the baseline specs for the gadget which stems from feedback submitted by more than 10,000 gamers over the past four months.

"You spoke and we listened," he said. "We’ve compiled all of the feedback we’ve received from the crowdsourced questions and we’ve got the final specs for Project Fiona that YOU, the community, have chosen."

According to the new list of specs, Razer's gaming tablet will feature an Intel Core i5 or i7 CPU, and an unnamed mid-tier discreet GPU equivalent to hardcore PC gaming on the go at medium settings. Unfortunately that's it regarding somewhat specific hardware details other than a thickness and weight twice that of an iPad, and removable controllers mounted on each side.

Over on the Project Fiona website, the spec list stemming from the concept device adds that the tablet will sport a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 display, Dolby 7.1 surround sound, 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, and a hybrid UI for PC gaming. The tablet will even sport force feedback, a 3-axis gyro, a magnetometer, and an accelerometer.

The final price, according to Razer's CEO, will be somewhere between $1299 to $1499 USD, depending on what users choose to go inside. In the meantime, gamers wanting one of the three giveaway units have until December 31 to like and share the contest link on Facebook.

"To thank you all for providing your feedback and as this is the world’s first gaming tablet truly designed for gamers by gamers, we’ve decided to hold a contest to give away three units (when we finally ship Project Fiona) randomly for those who will be signing off on the final specs," Min-Liang Tan said.

    Looks heavy, overpriced and less than practical.

    And made by Razer so it will be shoddy quality.

    That seems like way too much. I feel like if you wanted the best performance you'd dump that $1500 in a gaming laptop. They'll probably take a large chuck of money as a premium because they're razer, but we'll see. They don't really give enough info about hardware to make it worth looking into now

    yup more junk from razer .... anything with razer branding means HIGH price cheap quality building materials and construction, piss poor quality control, no understanding what gaming even is anymore. in the early days yes they were good but these days they more money profit aimed and have lost grip of quality products due to thier greed for profit its plain to see ..only thier hardcore fans still stick by them and even they are seeing the loss in quality oh and those who see the stunning packaging which leeds the unknowing buyer to believe the item must be top quality DONT be fooled. their day is looming to many new companys now that offer better build quality and cheaper .. why would you buy anything razer unless you dont know. they never get my money again end of.

    one thing i learned with Razer is they do a very good job of polishing a turd ! the packaging being the polish the product being the turd.

    Turd is TRUE! Many of their items break so easily. If it's anything like their Onza xbox controllers, it won't last a month. You'll probably go through at least 5 before they won't honor the warranty anymore.

    I haven't had bad experience with Razor in terms of quality but their products are generally overpriced and this is no exception. Plus, I can see this thing overheating like crazy, an i5 or i7 and a mid-range GPU in that small factor?

    poor build quality and cheap materials is all razer is known for these days and if your paying lots of money for the item then these are key factors ! i sujest you question your idea of quality if you buy Razer products ..

    let me put it to you this way i got back from my little so thought upgrade spree and after spending £194.98p i got home and started to unpack my new items ,ahh the fond memorys of upacking of the Razer arctosa keyboard lol ... well 1st thing i didnt notice was it was the black on black version ffs i cant see the letters i thought , well never mind im sure i can get used to them (not a fookn chance mate) next comes the mouse and i though ok is this a mistake surley this is a display model and dont work it weighs fook all? still next was the vespula mouse mate hmm this seems ok but did i really pay £29.99 for a peace of plastic oh well next item was the nostromo i liked this right away,well at least this look the bizz, anyway when i plugged everything in and fired up my pc much to my suprise the mouse was not fake it worked but felt very cheap, although that was nothing to the horror when i looked at the acrtosa keyboard lmfao i wish i'd kept it now just to laff at when i felt down ... it was put together so cheaply i was gob smacked ... the num lock light of death gave me near arch eye while it blinded my already hampered vision due to the keyboard being black and so are the letters. if id turnd on the caplock i feel i may have been blinded for life, ontop of that the light leaked out of every gap in the keyboard, it was just embracing, at the end of the day it looked like i had spent the best part of £200 on kids toys :/  that where built by kids . not the kind of look or feel i was looking for to behonest :/  Razer = Kids toys kind like fisher price toys but (*not as good build quality i must add) for pc gamers i'd say. i stop going on now lol

    No thanks. I'd rather buy a better gaming laptop or build a good rig for that kind of money.
