Razer working on small gaming device, said CEO

Gaming peripherals and device maker Razer will release a small gaming system, the company's CEO, Min-Liang Tan, revealed to PCWorld. Currently, the only gaming system the company makes and plans to release next month is the 17.3-inch Blade, which is a gaming notebook. Tan simply referred to the products as small form factor systems and didn't provide any more details.

The Blade is the company's first and only gaming notebook, sporting a 2.8GHz Core i7 CPU and NVIDIA's GeForce GT 555M graphics card. There is a programmable LCD beside the keyboard that shows off the custom commands. It will retail for $2,800.

The notebook was modeled after the Switchblade that was originally showed off at CES in Las Vegas last year. It was much smaller, however, at seven inches, and sported customizable LCD keys rather than a hardware keyboard.

Tan didn't specifically address the company's plans for the Switchblade in his e-mail.

The Blade will also arrive in China in mid-2012, where it will partner with local Internet company Tencent. The company will make some of its online games compatible with the notebook and its unique LCD panel.
