Razer Project Fiona surfaces at FCC sans side controllers

Filing suggests controller as having separate battery

A tablet by gaming peripheral manufacturer Razer has appeared in filings at the FCC. Razer's Project Fiona gaming tablet, last seen by Electronista at CES earlier this year, appears to have lost the handlebar-style controllers on the sides. A filing note relating to accessories mentions a Razer-branded controller, suggesting it as an optional attachment.

Despite the distinctive analog controller's relegation to status as a peripheral, Engadget spotted that the filing mentions the controller will be powered by its own 2800mAh battery. Having a separate battery to provide the controller power is unusual, with peripherals normally drawing power from the main device's battery, which in this case is rated at 5600mAh.

While a potential release date and price are not likely to be revealed in the near future, the overall design of the device is still ongoing. A Facebook campaign asked for fans to help refine the design of the tablet, which at CES was said to have an Intel Core i7 processor and was capable of playing full PC games, as well as supporting OnLive.
