Mobile phones have evolved crazily fast over the last few years. But even though quad-core phones are now available, the games being played on them are still way behind PC games. There is still need for hardware and software support to play good games on mobile phones and tablet devices. Hence we see that serious gamers are really not into playing Bounce and Angry Birds.
To address this need, Razer has come up with a novel concept keeping tablet gaming in mind. At the CES 2012 this week, Razer unveiled a tablet which has the Intel i7 CPU as its powerhouse and is designed to play today's PC games with "an intuitive control setup for a phenomenal on-the-go gaming experience." The tablet is called 'Project Fiona' and Razer claims that due to their partnership with Intel, this project has turned out a tablet which is closer to PC gaming than other mobile devices of today.
Brad Graff, Director of Partner Marketing at Intels' Netbook & Tablet groub said, "Project Fiona’s combination of high performance Intel-based gaming hardware and innovative tablet design is specifically focused for PC gamers. It will unleash the PC gamer to play their existing and future high-end games in one of the most exciting new form factors – a tablet."
The CEO of Razer, Min-Liang Tan said, "While multi-touch screens have become the de facto user interface for tablets, they are not the right interface for serious PC gaming. 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."
