Razer devices are routinely used by gamers who seek premium equipment for their gambling needs. Mice and keyboards developed by them are preferred by professionals and also enjoyed by millions of regular players worldwide. Not surprisingly, when the news broke out about the possibility of them developing a new mobile device for gaming, the community was enthusiastic. Min-Liang Tan, CEO and co-founder was the one to confirme the rumors, although for the time being details about the next product are scarce.
What we know is that the new gadget is specifically geared towards the entertainment and gaming public. This is not the first time that the company contemplates the possibility of creating its very own mobile product, after a couple of less successful attempts. Since 2005 when it was founded in Singapore, Razer has refined its products and it is known for producing high-end computer peripherals. The emphasis is clearly on gaming and the new device is just the natural step forward in their quest for global success.
Razer has spent $15 million on acquiring NextBit, a startup that could help them develop the upcoming mobile product. They are paying close attention to what happens in the Chinese market and plan on establishing a dominant position here. Meanwhile, most of the income comes from United States and Europe, where there is the greatest demand for PC peripherals. Razer is known worldwide not only for its quality product, but also the support and significant sponsorship deals signed with top eSports teams.
