Just last week Razer teased us with Project Fiona, today at CES 2012 they have unveiled it as a gaming tablet.
The Windows 8 slate is packing a new Intel Core i7 Ivy Bridge processor which is likely to dual-core rather than the quad-core version that features in desktops. It features a hybrid user interface for PC gaming along with a pair of integrated game controllers with analog sticks, each of which offers force feedback. It also features a multi-touch screen 10.1″ 1280×800 display.
The Windows 8 OS means that it will run all PC games without the need for any porting. The touch-screen means it will also support games designed specifically for tablets.
Speaking about Project Fiona, Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan said:
The user interface we have designed for Project Fiona allows all existing PC games to be played right out of the box and also provides game developers new opportunities as they develop next-gen games on a highly-intuitive platform. Both developers and gamers are going to love the new user interface that combines the best of a gamepad, multi-touch screen and accelerometers for an all-new gaming experience on-the-go
Developer units will be available “soon” with Razer suggesting that those interested in porting a significant title to Project Fiona should get in touch.
