Sure, you can still snag a handheld device fromSony (http://www.engadget.com/2012/02/13/playstation-vita-review/) or Nintendo (http://www.engadget.com/2012/07/10/nintendo-3ds-xl-review/), but today's video game industry is far more diverse. Gamers on the go have no shortage of hardware to pick from: tablets, smartphones, gaming laptops and purpose-built handhelds (http://www.engadget.com/2013/01/07/nvidia-project-shield-hands-on/) are redefining what a mobile gaming platform is. Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan must have felt the winds of change blowing his way when he cooked up Project Fiona (http://www.engadget.com/2012/01/10/project-fiona-raises-the-stakes-for-gaming-tablets-packs-ivy-br/), now known as the Razer Edge (http://www.engadget.com/2013/01/08/project-fiona-becomes-razer-edge-starts-at-999/). The company's marketing material frames the curious device as an all-in-one gaming arsenal; it's a tablet, says the product page, as well as a PC and console. Above all, it's modular, a souped-up tablet with a small collection of docks and cradles designed to scratch your gaming itch from all angles. All told, Razer calls it the most powerful tablet (http://www.engadget.com/2013/01/08/razer-edge-vs-the-competition/) in the world. Kitted out with the specs of a mid-range gaming laptop, it may very well be that -- but we couldn't let the proclamation pass without giving it the once-over ourselves.
