Alienware To Offer Phantom Lapboard
Phantom Entertainment, formerly Infinium Labs, today announced via press release that they have managed to find a buyer for their upcoming Phantom Lapboard. Gaming PC manufacturer Alienware has ordered the Lapboard and Wireless Laser Mouse for use in some of their Media Center-based PCs and their PC gear product line. Shipment of the Phantom hardware is scheduled to start in November, but given the company’s history, one might want to wait until the hardware is actually available before giving it a shot. Having Alienware order the Lapboard does give the company a little bit of credibility. Considering that the Alienware’s order is more than likely based on credit terms, though, means that Alienware is probably risking less money on this venture than the typical consumer.
Phantom Entertainment’s full press release continues below.
