Razer will begin taking pre-orders for the Edge, its gaming-specific Windows 8 tablet, on March 1 at 12:01 a.m. PT, and units will begin shipping to pre-order customers in "late March," the company announced today.
You can head to Razer's website for a list of retail and online outlets that will be selling the Edge. When the Edge is made available for pre-order later this week, Razer will also allow customers to pre-order accessories including the controller shell (with dual analog sticks), console dock and extended battery; those accessories are scheduled to ship alongside the tablet in late March. Razer will release a keyboard dock in the third quarter of 2013.
The Razer Edge features a 10.1-inch multitouch display and will be available in two configurations. The base model includes an Intel Core i5 processor and a 64 GB SSD, while the Razer Edge Pro packs a Core i7 processor and a 128 GB or 256 GB SSD.
The standard Razer Edge will be available for $999.99, while the 128 GB Pro will sell for $1,299 and the 256 GB Pro for $1,449.99. Check out our hands-on impressions from CES 2013 below.
