Razer unveils Atom-based Switchblade gaming handheld concept

updated 12:20 pm EST, Thu January 6, 2011

Razer Switchblade would give Intel handheld gaming

Razer used the start of CES to show off a unique concept for mobile gaming. The Switchblade has a notebook-style clamshell but is just 6.8 inches across and is designed to be used while entirely handheld. Along with a multi-touch screen, it has a dynamic keyboard whose assignments change depending on the game context.

The device has both 3G and Wi-Fi and can support an external mouse for a more desktop-like experience. Detailed specs aren't available, but the device is likely using an Atom Z600 from the Oak Trail family and should have better performance than usual for graphics for Intel hardware this size. Mini HDMI and USB 3.0 are built-in to provide the expansion.

As a concept, the Switchblade itself won't be made beyond prototypes on display at the show floor. However, it intends to make the template design through "selected partners" and thus a reality at some point in the future.
