Razer's Project Fiona Gaming Tablet Confirmed for Production
Razer garnered a lot of press at CES this year with their Fiona gaming tablet, a 10.1" Windows-based tablet packing a Core i7 processor and two joystick handles featuring dual analog sticks and a typical controller-style button layout. The device carried a pretty impressive speclist and walked out of Las Vegas with awards like "Best of CES" People's Voice and Cnet's Best-in-Show. At the time, Razer claimed that Project Fiona was slated for launch in the second half of 2012, but has remained mostly quiet in the months following.
A day after CEO Min-Liang Tan posted a picture of Project Fiona to his Facebook page asking for 10,000 likes in 7 days, the post crossed the mark. While it looks like the 2012 launch is unlikely, Min has confirmed via Twitter that production plans for the tablet are a go, with community feedback apparently set to play a significant role in the design process going forward. According to Min's Facebook page, there are are multiple design concepts that have been developed, so there is no final design specification as of yet. Hardware details have not yet been set in stone, with ARM and various Intel processors being mentioned as possibilities. Windows 8 is a given, though if ARM ends up being the hardware platform of choice, that would likely shift to Windows RT. The initial concept shown off at CES featured Windows 7, a ULV Core i7 processor, an unspecified dedicated graphics unit, and a 10.1" 1280x800 capacitive multitouch display.
