Razer, known for computers, keyboards and other gear aimed at avid video game players, is now trying to take on the biggest smartphone makers. 

For Razer, which recently moved its headquarters to San Francisco and is planning to go public in Hong Kong later this month, the move is a punch above its weight. On Nov 1, it took the wraps off its first smartphone, a US$700 (RM2,959) model designed to appeal to customers who use their phones primarily to play games and stream video.
