Looking for a gaming tablet you can really grab? Don’t look at the latest FCC filings then — Federal regulators appear to have snagged some exclusive hands-on time with Razer’s upcoming Project Fiona, and its trademark handlebars are nowhere in sight. The nunchuck-esque controllers we saw at CES didn’t make it in the FCC’s label location outline (seen above), but an attached accessory list makes note of a Razer-branded controller, powered by a 2800mAh battery, hinting that this prototype’s gamepads might well be independent or detachable. The same document lists a 5600mAh battery for the tablet itself, as well as a model number: RZ09-0093.
The Federal documents show a heavily redesigned device, falling in line with Razer’s recent community campaign: CEO Min-Liang Tan has been asking fans to help design Project Fiona on his Facebook page. Over the past several weeks, the community has weighed in on accessories, price, CPU / GPU configurations and more. This FCC prototype may not be the final design, but if nothing else, it’s proof that the device is evolving. Check out the Government’s inside scoop for yourself at the source link below.
