Razer Assesing Interest On 'Project Fiona' Gaming Tablet

By - Source: Razer (Facebook) | B 10 comments

Razer hasn't forgotten about Fiona.

It's been quite a while since we last heard anything about Razer's Project Fiona. Announced at CES 2012, Project Fiona is a gaming tablet that aims to change the minds of hardcore gamers unwilling to latch onto the idea of gaming on the go. Powered by Intel's Core i7 CPU, Project Fiona is designed to play the most popular PC games of today with "an intuitive control setup for a phenomenal on-the-go gaming experience." Razer said at the time that Project Fiona was more akin to a fully functioning PC. But what happened to Fiona?

According to Razer, the project is still alive. Kind of. The company posted to Facebook earlier today explaining that while it's been hard at work on Project Fiona since CES 2012, it hasn't quite nailed everything down. Razer says it's got things narrowed down to a couple of key concepts/designs and is looking to the community to gauge interest.

"If you'd like to see Razer make the product that won "Best of CES" People's Voice Award, then now's your chance to let your voice be heard," the post reads.

Razer says if the post gets 10,000 likes in the next week, it will "work on making the concept a reality and launch the product." So far it looks like Project Fiona is well on its way to reality, with a total of 6,383 likes already. Razer said that if the goal is reached, the company will also be reaching out to fans for input on design decisions, suggestions for specs, form factor, pricing, and features. No word on how long it will take from 10,000 likes to launch, unfortunately.

    Old hat. Didn't the wiki pad just launch. They seem similar. Even though this is supposed to be Windows based I would look to the slow market reception of the Wikipad and say that if something like this launches it needs to be in a very sweet price point. However if the price of the RazerBlade laptop is any indication, I would say it will be over priced.

    And I thought the only thing facebook likes could do was save starving children in Africa.

    Interesting but not liking the idea that I would have to look down while resting the device on my lap, hold it up in front of me or have something high enough that I could set it on while I'm looking straight-ahead. Hell if I want to have to look down or have my arms get tired.

    I'd gladly like it, if I knew the price of the proposed deal. If it was around $299-399 than I'm game. Other than that, a budget laptop will do for me around the same price.
