Razer just showed off a new handheld gaming concept machine at the CES show. Called the Switchblade Concept, the device is basically a tiny Windows 7-based, Intel Atom-running mini-PC that’s been tweaked specifically for gaming-on-the-go. The notebook-shaped device features a 6.8-inch multi-touch screen, and a dynamic keyboard with keys that change their assigned functions depending on the game being played.
It’s still a concept device that might take some time to gather support, but here’s what to expect from the machine in case some one decides to run with the idea: The Switchblade features HDMI port for connecting to a larger screen, mic and headset connections, and a USB port for connecting a mobile gaming mouse. That last one sounds great. There are first-person shooters made for tablets, consoles and smartphones, but a mouse and keyboard will always be the best way to play them decently.
