Razer Switchblade gaming concept to launch in China

The Razer Switchblade portable gaming PC concept set to launch in China.

Unveiled at CES in January, the US based company confirmed at an Intel Developer Forum in Beijing that the dual 7-inch screen laptop is set to take on the Nintendo 3DS and the Sony NGP for the portable gaming crown.

Chinese internet company Tencent will be working in collaboration with Razer to develop games for the platform of which four titles will be pre-installed on the device.Commenting on the decision to enter the Chinese market first, Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan said, "We think we have a phenomenal opportunity in China," adding, "I think that our focus is on China, and then we'll explore the rest of the world."

Specs-wise we know so far that Razer has been working with Intel, so we can probably expect some Atom processor technology packed inside. Strongly focused on PC-style gaming, the lower screen incorporates changing keys, which take on different functions depending on what game you’re playing.

Razer have set no release date as yet, but we can expect further announcements later this year. With the 3DS already out and the possible arrival of the Sony NGP (PSP2) before the end of the year, portable gaming fans look like they have plenty to look forward to in 2011.
