So what are you playing games on when you’re away from your domicile? A Nintendo 3DS? A PS Vita that had you jumping through hoops so that you could smuggle it in from Japan? Or how about a tablet device?

Now, while each device has its merits, they’ve also got their own drawbacks as well. But just imagine what it would be like if raw computing power could be combined with the latest advances in mobile technology.

Razer has imagined and designed just that, and they even have a name for their device. It’s…Fiona.

Razer debuted the device yesterday at the Consumer Electronics Show, as a proof-of-concept device. Essentially a handheld gaming PC, the tablet-influenced device features a weird set of controllers that look like they were cannibalized from a Wii console, an Intel Core i7 processor, accelerometers, a multi-touch screen and force feedback.

Razer claims that their device will be able to run high-end games straight out of the box, and that Fiona will be marketed with a RRP of around a $1000, before it launches at the end of this year.

Honestly, it’s a weird-looking mutt of a device, that looks like the bastard child of an iPad and Wii console. But jumping Jiminy, do I want one of those consoles.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.
