Remember Project Fiona? Razer's gaming PC trapped in the body of a tablet? It's been a while since we've heard anything about the project, so we'd sort of assumed it had fallen by the wayside. Now it appears as though Razer is attempting to seriously gauge interest before deciding whether or not to start producing the thing seriously.
Yes, it seems as though Razer is playing the old 'Like and Share if you want it' game.
On a recent post on its Facebook page, Razer has stated that if this post receives 10,000 likes or shares Razer will "work on making the concept a reality and launch the product".
Of course, the post has already been liked over 10,000 times, so it's pretty much guaranteed that the product will make it to market.
Interestingly, the Facebook post goes on to discuss plans for crowd sourcing designs.
"[W]e’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."
Interesting stuff. Would anyone here actually consider buying a gaming tablet? It all depends on the final design for me. It just seems easier to buy a small, powerful laptop at this point. To me, tablets exist to provide a gaming point of difference. I'm happy playing easily accessible, touch controlled games on tablets. It's easy to like or share something on Facebook, but I wonder if Razer will have a harder time convincing consumers to actually lay down the dollars when the product is launched.
But I'm keen to hear your thoughts.
