Razer Teases Final Project Fiona Hardware Specs

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.

    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

    And made by Razer so it will be shoddy quality.
