Once you slide in your Razer Phone in Project Linda, you can play games on it, browse the Internet, watch YouTube videos or send email. The Razer Project Linda is an exciting prototype that allows the user to dock the Razer Phone. According to the company, the Project Linda will act as a bridge to fill the gap between handheld entertainment and laptop convenience.

Project Linda is a laptop powered by Razer Phone. The entire system would be rendered completely useless if Razer changes the phone's form factor with its next release-an extremely common move by smartphone manufacturers.

"Razer's Project Linda concept is an ultraportable laptop design powered by the Android-based Razer Phone".

Further, like any other laptop, it comes with a full-size built-in keyboard which is customized for the Android environment with dedicated keys for navigation, searches and app selection. "The 5.7" touchscreen of the Razer Phone can function as a touchpad, or as an interactive second touch display for custom interfaces or additional apps. However, the Project Linda laptop is still in the prototype stage, and it could take a while to be launched as a final product.

Another perk of having the Razer phone on hand is that you'll be getting the superior sound quality that the phone has to offer, seeing as its speakers point up.

Exercise Increased Caution While Travelling To India
India has been ranked Level 2, i.e. the U.S. citizens are advised to "exercise increased caution" when they travel to India. The advisory said that Americans deciding to visit India must not travel alone, particularly if they were women.

Project Linda is constructed of CNC aluminum, and measures just 0.59 inches thick.

Other features of the Razer laptop include 200GB onbaord storage, USB-A port, USB Type-C charging port, 3.5mm headphone jack, 720p HD webcam, a dual-array microphone and the phone's 8 gigs worth RAM to run the show. 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. The laptop is now a prototype and tagged under Project Linda, but there's no certainty of seeing it in the market anytime soon, or at all.

When Razer announced their introduction into the mobile market, it was an impressive debut to the surprise of many.

Perhaps Razer can have more luck this time around.
