I'm not a huge fan of mobile gaming, but the mysterious "Project Fiona" concept from Razer looks amazing. It's a 10.1-inch tablet with dedicated gaming controls bolted onto either side. The company tentatively showed it off last year but now — with some help from the online community — it looks set to go into production.
Company CEO Min-Liang Tan posted a photo of the Project Fiona tablet to his Facebook page and told his followers that if the post crossed 10,000 Likes and shares, the tablet would go into production:
If this post gets 10,000 likes/shares in the next 7 days, we’ll work on making the concept a reality and launch the product. On top of that, we’ll share some of the high-level concepts with you to crowd source some of the design decisions – For Gamers. By Gamers. We’d like to hear how you would like to design the actual tablet right here on the Razer Facebook Page, as well as take suggestions for specs, form factor, pricing, features etc.
This is your chance to tell us what you want. So if you really want to get your hands on a tablet designed for PC gamers - Like this post, Share it, and let your voices be heard!
That was yesterday. The post has had 10,911 likes, and 4234 shares since then, so it's a fair bet we'll see this awesome bit of kit go into production.
Thanks to the overwhelming community response, Tan has said that Razer will be sharing concept designs on Facebook as of next week. [Facebook]
