Remember Project Fiona, that Razer-made tablet gaming / console we talked about in the not-so-distant past while looking at what tablets competitors are making? It looks like the project still exists, although now it’s called the Razer Edge.

And this time around we have updates specs for the gaming tablet, right alongside pricing details for the device.

Razer’s tablet will cost $999 – yes, that’s not a typo – which makes it a lot more expensive than any tablet out there that’s capable of offering access to lots of gaming action. Sure, the Edge is basically a console packed in a tablet and will be able to let you enjoy some console-grade PC titles on a tablet, but that’s quite a price to pay for an entertainment device.

In case you’re wondering, the device will run Windows 8 so yes, it also acts as a PC. But just like other Windows 8 tablets, it’s still very expensive.

The device will be available in two versions, Razer Edge (priced at $999) and Razer Edge Pro (priced at $1,299). Here are the main specs and features for each of them:

Razer Edge

  • 10.1-inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution
  • Intel Core i5 processor
  • NVIDIA GT640M LE GPU
  • 4GB of DDR3 RAM
  • 64GB SSD
  • USB 3.0
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Windows 8
  • Gamepad Controller not included

Razer Edge Pro

  • 10.1-inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution
  • Intel Core i7 processor
  • NVIDIA GT640M LE GPU
  • 8GB of DDR3 RAM
  • 128/256GB SSD
  • USB 3.0
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • WuWindows 8
  • Gamepad Controller included

The Gamepad Controller will turn the tablet into a full mobile console and, as you can see, will only be bundled with the more expensive version. Other accessories include a Keyboard Dock, an extended battery and a Docking Station.
