Razer Edge will ship with Steam preinstalled

The Razer Edge have announced at GDC in San Francisco that Valve's Steam software will be in-built with the Edge and Ege Pro consoles.    

Formerly known as Project Fiona, the Edge is a 10.1-inch Windows 8 tablet, and co-founder, CEO and creative director Min-Liang Tan says, "Providing users with access to Steam will enable Razer Edge users to play their favourite games with greater ease than ever before," TheSlanted reports.

Steam has a library of over 2,000 new and old-school titles, and the more than 40 million users will be pleased to hear the news that Steam will come pre-installed on the Edge.

Greg Coomer, product designer at Valve says, "The Razer Edge has more than enough power to play the latest and greatest Steam titles and it is completely built with PC gamers in mind."

Both the Edge and Edge Pro tablets will work with detachable gaming contollers as well as optional keyboard docks. The keyboard docks won't be available until Q3 2013.

The console will act as competition to gaming laptop, the Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 and tablets such as Microsoft's Surface Pro and Apple's iPad 4.

Units are expected to start shipping soon and prices start from $999.
