The $999 Razer Edge gaming tablet is now shipping out to customers who placed pre-orders throughout March.
Remember Project Fiona, that Razer-made tablet gaming / console we talked about in the not-so-distant past while looking at what tablets competitors are making? It looks like the project still exists, although now it’s called the Razer Edge.
We’ve probably heard the “created for the people by the people” marketing gimmick used at least a few dozen times in the past years or so, but no one took that approach as literally as Razer. The small computer peripherals manufacturer unveiled the bold “Project Fiona” gaming tablet prototype back at CES 2012 and then left it all up to the public’s will.
With gaming being a major use for tablets, it’s no surprise that we’re seeing more tablets introduced that focus strictly on gaming, like Razer’s Project Fiona. This week, Razer filed documents with the FCC related to Project Fiona, but the handles shown off early on seemed to be curiously absent.
Android tablets are about to get new competitors in the near and distant future, some of them running iOS 6 while others will have Windows 8 under the hood. Today I’m specifically talking about Apple’s iPad mini and Razer’s Project Fiona, as both have been confirmed for production.
