    After acquiring Nextbit, Razer sets sights on disrupting mobile market

    Gaming company Razer - which has so far focused on devices like gaming mice, keyboards, headphones, as well as gaming laptops - has now revealed that they're planning to enter the mobile gaming industry.According to the company's CEO Tan Min-liang, mobile gaming is "going to be a huge part of our business."
    Nextbit RobinRazer has entered into a partnership with telecommunications firm Three Group as part of which they'll be offering specific tariff plans, services as well as devices to electronic games players. Besides, they'll also be focusing on "future mobile devices."
    "Right now I don’t see any mobile device or software platform that really fulfills the needs of the [mobile] gamer ... there is a huge opportunity to disrupt the mobile market," Tan said.
    Razer acquired Android gaming company Ouya back in 2015, and more recently Nextbit, maker of the cloud-focused smartphone Robin. So the company seems to have the talent that's required to get into mobile industry.
    “With Nextbit, we now have the top tech leads of Android from Google with us, and the [former] lead designer for HTC who has helped design HTC phones for [years]. We’re bringing together the best possible talent at Razer to work on next generation devices," the CEO added.

    Can't disrupt a market if you don't even try...

    Will never understand people playing games on the phone besides Snake or Pac Man or Pokemon Go.

    The question was to point out the irony that the OUYA was only suppose to have been based on Android as the only thing in common with phones, then Razer bought them and put the store on a device that includes Google Play, and now may make its way fully on phones.

    At least this means they have a reason to keep the Cortex store open awhile longer. At least until this product dies from lack of promotion and support too.
    "But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
    "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
    "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat, "otherwise you wouldn't have come here."

    That is true.
    On the promotion front, I wonder if Razer has just had too much good fortune with word-of-mouth and never really had to focus on real product promotion.
