Belkin has announced the successor to the n52 SpeedPad, the n52te. What does the "te" stand for, you ask? Tournament Edition. This professional-grade SpeedPad promises to improve your response time in PC games like first-person shooters, real-time strategy games, and MMORPGs.
Teaming up with elite gaming peripheral manufacturer Razer, the n52te carries with it a customizable software suite allowing players to completely modify their gaming experience. The device will support multiple player profiles in addition to Razer Synapse onboard memory, which allows for plug-and-play functionality without the need to install additional software wherever you take it. Also new to the SpeedPad is a fully backlit keyboard and scroll wheel.
In celebration of the n52te release, Belkin has launched a monthlong contest where gamers submit their best frag sessions caught on tape. The "Proud to PWN" submission deadline is November 4, where the 50 best videos will be awarded a new n52te. Check out www.playtopwn.com for all contest details.
The n52te is scheduled for a November 2007 release and will retail for $70.
