Mobile gaming is fast-becoming a popular concept, with different game developers releasing special versions of their games for smartphones and tablets. However, we haven’t seen many such tablets which are specifically geared towards gaming. For instance, Fiona gaming tablet, which was unveiled at CES this year, is one such tablet and now, it has been announced that the tablet is all set for production.
When Razer showed off the Fiona gaming tablet at CES 2012, it garnered mass appreciation and was able to win a number of awards for the concept and the looks. The tablet packs a 10.1″ display and was shown to run Windows.
The idea floated by Razer was that it would pack a core i7 processor alongwith two joystick handles to each side of the tablet, thus making it a true gaming gear. The display of the tablet was a 1280 x 800 capacitive multitouch screen, which certainly contributed to the wow-factor surrounding it.
It was expected that the company may launch the tablet in the second half of 2012 but until now, we didn’t hear any significant updates from Razer. Now, Razer’s CEO, Min-Liang Tan has announced on his Twitter profile that the tablet is all set to go into production.
However, the company is still contemplating a number of design options and, Tan says, it is not set on any definite decision. For instance, it is still wondering whether to choose an Intel or an ARM processor to go into the slate and upon that decision would depend that whether Windows 8 or Windows RT runs on it.
