CES 2012: Portable Video Gamers Rejoice With Razer’s Project Fiona Tablet

Friday, January 13th, 2012

Gaming peripheral company Razer is developing a tablet on steroids to target video game lovers.  Unveiled at CES, the Project Fiona PC gaming tablet is targeted for release in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Twin joystick controller handles on each side of the tablet provide for additional gameplay options beyond current touch-screen tapping. Fiona will include touch capability and built-in accelerometers for motion sensing.  “It will run your high-end PC games and Angry Birds,” says Razer CEO and Creative Director Min-Liang Tan. “We have brought in the best of the Sixaxis on the PlayStation and best of the iPad interface and best of Xbox interface, all integrated.”

Definitely a unique design, but is it too bulky?  Will hardcore gamers flock to stores when it comes out?  What are your thoughts?
