  • Razer Unveils Project Linda: Android Laptop/Phone Hybrid Concept

This past November, Razer Inc. announced the first-ever high-end phone smartphone for gamers. It'll be a shame to see Project Linda go to docks, but even if Razer comes up with the commercial launch, it won't be cheap. Looking at the dimensions of the trackpad surface area, it looks like you can only dock the Razer Phone and nothing else.

Razer laptop also features a full-sized keyboard like any other traditional laptop and has a CNC aluminium chassis of 0.59 inches thick and weighs less than 1.25 kg with the phone docked. At the worldwide consumer electronics show (CES) 2018, the gaming titan unveiled a 13.3-inch laptop, which puts more sense into Razer Phone's being into this world.

As one of the few companies in the world to straddle user interfaces, laptops and smartphones, Project Linda is a groundbreaking concept that blurs the lines between the smartphone and the laptop.

The Razer phone's Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 mobile platform and 8GB of RAM will be powering the experience, a press release noted, so it's not a solution for power users. Or if you prefer, if can be used an interactive secondary touch display, or run a second app in tandem with the 13.3-inch display.

United States puts a hold on H1B plan, relief for Indians
The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) indicated that there is no end of extensions for H-1B holders. The change would force all Indians, not holding green card or have applied for a green card, to leave the US.

Once in place, the Razer Phone's 5.7 inch display turns into a touchpad, much like the screen-based touchpad in one of Razer's other laptops, and together with a 13 inch Quad HD screen, a 720p web cam, a standard USB port, and a USB Type C charging port, not to mention 200GB of storage, Project Linda is nearly like a Chromebook of sorts for gaming, except it runs Android as the Razer phone does, too. The company claims that the device instantly transforms Project Linda into an Android laptop.

The laptop shell doesn't have the standard internals of a laptop, instead being mostly a case for a 1080p display, 53.6 Whr battery, and a hard drive to extend the phone's storage.

Despite its novelty, there are two glaring issues with Project Linda. It features its own built-in power bank for charging the Razer Phone will docked, and it also incorporates an additional 200GB of storage for your apps and games. The Razer Phone's performance, display, and dual front-firing speakers combine seamlessly with Project Linda's larger screen, keyboard, and battery to provide the ultimate mobile hybrid setup for gaming, creativity, and productivity. Razer has not yet released any specific information for when the device will be updated, but we expect it to be soon.

This phone and laptop combination is ideal for gamers, who'd like to switch between work and play effortlessly.
