Razer Gaming IPO?

Razer is probably a rather familiar name with Starcraft 2 fans, partly because that name shows up on the jerseys of the famous SlayerS team and partly because of their high performance (and rather expensive) gaming gear.

If there is a listing, the article points towards Hong Kong, Singapore or the USA as potential listing sites.

The date for the IPO has not been set however, according the the news report.

According to the news article, Razer is has its HQ in California, has offices in San Francisco but operates too out of places in Asia from Singapore, Seoul and Shanghai as well as a few more.

And they have recently gone into the laptop scene, creating their own Razer blade gaming laptop that has already been sold. Their 17 inch $2800 laptop apparently sold out in just 30 minutes.

It looks like Razer is indeed doing rather well now. Perhaps they will be the next apple computers, but of the gaming industry.

Razer Switchblade

Razer has what could be a revolutionary new design to laptops. One that is entirely devoted to gaming. It seems to be the Apple Inc of the gaming line. Their mockup video showcased it playing Dota and World of Warcraft on the touch screen with a keyboard that has an interface which changes in the game. From their teaser video Starcraft 2 was also seen so it wouldn’t be too far-fetched an assumption to say that they have Starcraft 2 Gamers in mine with their Razer Switchblade ‘laptop’.
