Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan was interviewed by CNBC, where he explained: "One of the most hotly rumored things about Razer is that we're coming up with a mobile device. And I can say that we are coming up with a mobile device specifically geared toward gamers and entertainment. We're hoping to have it come ... by the end of the year, so that's something we're working on".

The gaming peripheral giant isn't releasing a new product into the mobile market 'just because', it has been planned and it's made for gamers, with Tan continuing: "The mobile market is one of those that we've taken a long-term view to look at ... We realized that a lot of our gamers are also passionate about the mobile gaming market, so we've done a couple of moves".
