Project Fiona is a concept design that was revealed earlier this year by Razer and is a tablet that is designed for PC gamers. Min-Liang Tan, CEO of Razer USA, made a post on his Facebook page last October that challenged gamers worldwide to share /like his post and if ever it reached 10,000 shares/likes within 7 days the company will be making the tablet a reality. It broke the 10,000 mark in less than 7 days which is why the device will be made to the delight of fans.
This is going to be the world’s first crowdsourced gaming tablet as the feedback of more than 10,000 was taken into consideration as to what the specifications of the device will be. The final specs are listed below.
Project Fiona Specifications
- 10.1” 1280×800
- Intel Core i5 or i7
- Mid-tier discrete GPU
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
- Bluetooth 3.0
- 3-axis gyro, magnetometer, accelerometer
- Dolby 7.1 surround sound
- Detachable controller
- Twice as thick and as heavy as the iPad
The specifications listed for the device will make it play Crysis 2 however we doubt if it could handle Crysis 3. We’re also unsure on how the battery life of this device will fare when playing games. We all know that playing games on laptops rapidly drains the battery.
Over at their Facebook page a contest is being held which will allow 3 lucky people to win a Project Fiona once it ships out. All you have to do is like and share the gadget on their page on or before December 31. The contest is open to anyone worldwide.
No date was announced as to when this gaming tablet will ship out but we are most likely to be seeing it this coming CES 2013.
