Razer Switchblade Clamshell Concept Imagines Real Gaming In Your Pocket

Known for its gaming prowess and passion, Razer wants to take gaming on the go as they’ve imagined in the Switchblade Concept. This handheld device measures 6.7 x  4.5 x 1 inch and incorporates an ultra-sensitive touchscreen with multitouch support. The screen is a 7-inch glassy LCD with 1024 x 600-pixel resolution. But its the innovative tactile keyboard that’s the star of this show. The keys dynamically change and adapt to the game being played. Razer has patent pending software that lets the user create a custom profile for favorite games, or to download templates for popular titles such as World of Warcraft. Those templates then let you assign art and to specific keys, some of which can be animated.

The clamshell concept would offer both Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity options, as well as Mini HDMI and USB 3.0. Under the hood would be an Intel Atom processor.

There are not currently any plans to bring the device to market (despite two years of work from a design team working in stealth mode) so no word on price. According to the company, “Razer will be working with selected partners to design and launch products based off the Razer Switchblade concept design.”
