For customers in the US and Canada, Razer’s Edge and Edge Pro tablets will be available for pre-order on March 1st. The 10-inch gaming tablets will have a starting price of $999.

Razer has announced that pre-orders for the company’s Edge gaming tablets will start on March 1st in the US and Canada. Customers will begin receiving their orders later on the same month. The two tablets are called the Razer Edge and the Razer Edge Pro.

The Razer Edge comes with an Intel Core i5 processor, Nvidia GeForce GT 640M LE and 64 GB SSD. Meanwhile the Razer Edge Pro comes with an Intel Core i7 processor, Nvidia GeForce GT 640M LE and 128 GB SSD.

According to the Carlsbad based company the Razer Edge is the fruit of crowdsourcing, which helped shape the design and specifications of the tablet. It was an effort that Razer describes as, “an unprecedented move for a hardware manufacturer.” Formerly known as Project Fiona, the Razer Edge is said to have won 8 awards at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show.

Also available for pre-order will be the optional gamepad controller and console dock. The only product that wasn’t able to make the launch date is the keyboard dock, which will be made available in Q3 2013.

Unfortunately, no information was given on when to expect availability in other countries and regions. Pricing will start at $999.
