In the fall of 2011, Razer released the Razer Blade laptop, which contained an LCD trackpad along with buttons on a keypad above it that had LED displays. Both were run by Razer's own Switchblade user interface. Today, the company has announced a new PC keyboard that incorporates both the trackpad and the LED keypad found in the Razer Blade.
The new Razer Deathstalker Ultimate keyboard will allow users to put in any image in the 10 LED keys, thanks to the company's Synapse 2.0 software. The LCD trackpad will also come with a number of pre-loaded widget apps for people who want to do some other tasks while gaming on the big PC screen. Apps to access Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, a web brower and more will be included.
The Razer Deathstalker Ultimate keyboard will be released in September for $249. The company will also sell a regular version of the Deathstalker keyboard, without the special trackpad or LED keys, in the fourth quarter for $79.99.
Razer also announced that it has released an SDK for the Switchblade UI, allowing third party apps to be made for the Switchblade UI used in the Razer Blade laptop and the Deathstalker Ultimate keyboard, along with Razer's Star Wars: The Old Republic keyboard.
