Phantom Lapboard Launch

Phantom Entertainment (originally known as Infinium Labs) has been vilified for years for promises of unreleased hardware. In what may be a surprise to many, the company on late Thursday committed to a near-term launch for its new Phantom Lapboard. The device was originally intended as the central controller for the now cancelled Phantom Game Console but has since been reworked as a keyboard/mouse hybrid for Macs and Windows used in the living room as a home theater PC. The keyboard tilts upwards and rotates to reveal a mousing surface underneath; Phantom says that the USB-based device rotates a full 360 degrees so that left-handed mouse users and others can get a comfortable fit.

In the announcement, Phantom revealed that the Lapboard will ship in November for $129, but is available for $99 through pre-orders from the company website.
