Razer working on smaller gaming systems, says CEO

Razer has had a busy year, launching a number of new gaming PC mice and an Xbox 360 gamepad, along with keyboards, headsets and other products. The biggest announcement was made a few months ago when the company revealed the Razer Blade, an upcoming gaming PC notebook with some interesting and innovative features such as an LED screen placed next to the keyboard.

The Razer Blade is still scheduled to launch by the end of 2011, despite the fact that two prototypes of the notebook were reported stolen from Razer's R&D labs. However it looks like Razer is already working on even more portable gaming devices. PCWorld.com reports that in an interview, CEO Min-Liang Tan said, "More products will follow including small form factor systems."

Razer had previously announced the Razer Switchblade, a concept for a 7 inch screen-based gaming PC device. That concept design has yet to be launched but a number of its ideas found their way into the upcoming Razer Blade, a large (17 inch) but thin notebook that will have the same kind of customizable user interface that was introduced on the Razer Switchblade concept.

In the meantime, Razer has yet to give a specific launch date for the Razer Blade notebook PC. When the notebook was first announced, Razer gave it a fairly expensive $2,799 price point.

LED screen instead of keyboard? wow.. that will be awesome for switching between German and English

I don't know how the responsiveness would be for gaming though?
