While it may look like your average Android tablet adorned with a pair of button-festooned handlebars, beneath the shimmering screen of Razer's Project Fiona lurks the beating heart of a high-powered gaming PC. Are we looking at the future of portable gaming?
Project Fiona's debut today as a proof-of-concept design at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is part of Razer's calculated strategy to stand out from the annual parade of recolored smart phones and Android tablets. Last year they drew the attention of gamers with the Razer Switchblade, essential a handheld gaming PC. While elements of the Switchblade later appeared in the design for the company's $2,800 Razer Blade gaming laptop, the Switchblade itself never surfaced as an actual product.
