Gentec International is pleased to announce a distribution partnership with Razer Inc., the world’s leading lifestyle brand for gamers. The distribution agreement will focus on the mobile gaming accessories category for Canada.

Mobile gaming is the fastest growing gaming platform worldwide with 13% growth year-over-year.1 As gamers move to their smartphones as the new platform of choice, the introduction of 5G networks to Canada unlocks an even larger market of cloud-connected, low-latency gaming. Coupled with the cloud gaming services of Google Stadia, Apple Arcade, and Microsoft Xbox Steaming, the mobile gaming ecosystem is now complete. Razer’s mobile gaming products include mobile gaming controllers, true wireless headphones and even smartphone cases specifically designed to dissipate heat, with more exciting products on the way.

“We look forward to promoting this industry leading brand to maximize the potential sales in the Canadian wireless channel,” stated Anthony Sesel, Managing Director – Wireless & Mobile Gaming Division at Gentec International. Razer’s flagship mobile gaming product, the Razer Kishi, attaches directly to smartphones and provides thumbsticks and tactile buttons for a true gaming experience. It is currently shipping for both Android devices and Apple devices. “With the introduction of 5G networks to Canada, connected mobile gaming is poised to take off in 2021. We are excited to bring Razer’s coveted brand to Canada.”
