The Razer Edge first saw life as Project Fiona at CES 2012. In that iteration, the game pad controllers were fixed to the main tablet body. Gamer feedback pushed Razer to build the control sticks into an accessory, one that also includes an option for an extra battery.

You can also use the Razer Edge's docking station to connect to a TV via an HDMI port. Plug PC game pads into the dock and the Edge effectively becomes a game console.
