Razer takes home over 20 “Best of CES” awards combined for its Project Linda mobile computing prototype, and new wireless HyperFlux technology
LAS VEGAS (CES 2018) –The Project Linda Android laptop/phone hybrid from Razer won 20 “Best of CES” show honors, breaking the company’s own records from previous concepts, including Project Valerie (2016), Project Ariana (2016), Project Fiona (2012) and the Razer SwitchBlade (2011).

The company is welcoming feedback on Project Linda via Razer’s social channels, including Razer Insider, Facebook and Twitter, for those interested in shaping the future of the Android laptop hybrid concept.
In addition to Project Linda, Razer received significant attention for the Razer Mamba HyperFlux, the world’s first battery-less, wireless gaming mouse. The latest addition in Razer’s best-selling wireless line, the Razer Mamba and Firefly HyperFlux, earned five awards as of the date of this release.
