When we hear about Razer, we usually think of its sleek line of high-end gaming laptops and gaming accessories. However, something that we haven’t associated Razer with just yes is smartphones.
We have been waiting for this ever since Razer’s acquisition (this past January) of the smartphone startup: Nextbit – the company behind the successful Kickstarter phone: the Robin.
The tweet says “WATCH for our biggest unveiling…” with the first word appearing in all caps. The same word is in the image: “WATCH – coming soon, Nov 1” with someone using a mystery handheld device.
Back in June, CEO of Razer - Tan Min-liang said:
Right now I don’t see any mobile device or software platform that really fulfills the needs of the [mobile] gamer ... there is a huge opportunity to disrupt the mobile market.
This leads us to speculate that Razer might release some kind of smartphone or small tablet for consuming media and/or playing mobile games. Though we’re placing our bets on a smartphone since the device shown in the picture looks too small to be a tablet. A smartphone-sized device dedicated to media and gaming is also a plausibility.
Until then, we can only keep speculating exactly what Razer is cooking up. What are your predictions as to what Razer is going to announce next month?
Gaming watch is much more awesome than gaming phone =)
Would be some probably generic streaming gaming device like Nvidia Shield. Best case scenario, proper smartphone/console with latest Tegra chipset and some maybe exclusive high-end games? But that word WATCH does not sound good, I don't want to watch...
And it's gonna be usa only smartphone
