Razer's Project Fiona is a tablet and a PC in one device. It uses a Windows 8 Operating System and runs on an Intel i7 processor. It's a thing to behold, however Project Fiona is still in the prototype stage.
Not at it's current price.
The only thing that it will manage to kill is itself especially at that price. For that price ppl can build an med to high-end desktop and still have some money left over.
it wont be a total bust though, there is a market for gamers on the go who want more than just timewaster games. this will allow people to play their AAA games anywhere.
that being said, i cant see it being a super hot seller. too expensive for kids, and too expensive for most young adults.
@bodybombs, if adults want an actually portable system to play AAA games on, they could get a Vita and use the rest to build a decent rig.
Notice how every single new gizmo is a "handheld killer", yet no one entertains the notion that the 3DS or Vita are mobile gaming killers... What has gaming come to? It's as if journalists WANT gaming to dissolve.
..price and : SIZE.
I can't think about anything more useless than this.
Yeah I have never been a fan of tablets. Why not just get a laptop? I dont know I dont see the attraction
more like a pocket book Killer
Let's face it. If I want a high end PC, it would be a desktop, and it would be way cheaper than this Fiona. However, if I wanted an handheld, I would get the Vita or the 3DS, or even and iPad which are waaaaay cheaper than this. Besides, the Fiona is not truly an handheld, you can't put that in your pocket, and I find it hard puting that into anywhere becayse of those horrible 'psmoves' in the side. I can't understand how people are hyping this, and yet Vita is doomed and the 3DS was doomed. Razer is getting ridiculous. First they come up with a gaming laptop using a mousepad (!) costing 2700$ (!!!!) and now a gaming tablet costing 1000$?
it's fugly, and that thing won't even fit inside my backpack. And for that price, I'd rather get an Alienware m15x.
You cant take the controls off, the price is STUPID! at 10.1 inch screen I don't really call it a handheld, that's not including the controller poking out the side and the casing... and by the time its out to buy people will be saving for next gen consoles
You might as well call this a keyboardless gaming netbook. This is like saying can a gaming netbook be the handheld gaming killer. I view this as being an addition to the PC gaming market, and not direct competition with a classic handheld gaming device.
The $1000 cost will be a huge deterrent to a lot of handheld gamers to want to make that leap. Personally, I've always wanted a tablet with a physical controller, but not at that price.
How many times do I have to say it? No, it will not kill handhelds, I don't even think there is a market for it. Most people have either a console or PC. Those people would then want a handheld that's actually portable, like the 3DS and PS Vita that they can pull out discretely and play. Nobody is going to take that thing with them and pull it out on the bus, or anywhere for that matter.
$1000 a handheld killer it does not make.
NOPE lol it will never happen
Hahaha oh that article made me laugh so hard XD No.
And people are saying the PS Vita is expensive and can't fit your pocket... Take a look at that folks. LOL!
