Windows 8 tablet renamed at CES 2013; base model includes 10.1-inch touch screen, Intel i5 chip, 4GB of RAM; $1,300 Pro model features faster chip, more memory.
Today at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show, peripheral maker Razer renamed its Windows 8 "Project Fiona" gaming tablet to simply "Edge." In addition to giving the device a new name, Razer revealed specifications, pricing, and timing information for a base model and a Pro version.
The base version, which will retail for $1,000, runs on Windows 8 and includes a 10.1-inch touch screen, an Intel Core i5 chip, an Nvidia GT 640M GPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 64GB solid state drive. The $1,300 Pro model features a faster Core i7 chip, 8GB of RAM, and either 128GB or 256GB SSD.
Both versions include a front-facing 2MP high-definition camera and will be available sometime during Q1 (January-March 2013).
Various peripherals for the Razer Edge will also be available upon launch later this year. Most relevant to gamers is the Gamepad controller, which is now an optional feature for the device. This add-on (pictured above) features two controllers with backlit action buttons and analog sticks. This peripheral will retail for $250.
Other peripherals available for the Razer Edge are a keyboard dock ($200), a docking station ($100), extended battery pack ($50), and a 65-watt power adapter ($50).
