Windows 8-based Razer Edge Pro tablet pre-orders halted due to high demand

On March 1st, Razer started taking pre-orders for its two Windows 8-based PC gaming tablets, the Razer Edge and the more expensive Razer Edge Pro. This week, the company's CEO has announced that it has stopped taking pre-orders for the Razer Edge Pro due to high demand.

In a post on his Facebook page, CEO Min-Liang Tan stated:

We've had to stop taking pre-orders for the Razer Edge Pro as the pre-orders have gone beyond our foreseeable manufacturing capacity (i.e. all stock is sold out for the months to come) ... We're doing everything we can to get more units out in the coming months. We appreciate the patience.

The post did not state how many units of the Razer Edge Pro were ordered. Just a reminder: the 10.1 tablet has a Intel Core i7 processor, an an NVIDIA GT640M LE GPU and 8GB of DDR3 RAM. A 128GB version was being sold for $1,299 while a 256GB version was selling for for $1,499.

Tan did say that there were very limited amounts of the cheaper Razer Edge tablet that are still available for sale on Razer's website. It is priced at $999 and comes with an Intel Core i5 processor, an NVIDIA GT640M LE GPU, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 64GB SSD. Razer is also selling some accessories for both tablets including the Gamepad Controller for $249.99 that adds two game controllers, one on either side of the tablet.
