Phantom Entertainment Launches Online Store

Lapboard Selling for $129.95 – Verdict: Not For Serious Gamers

The Phantom is here! No not the console, but a keyboard. Phantom Entertainment (OTC:PHEI), formerly known as Infinium Labs, launched its new website and online store to support the marketing and sales of the Phantom Lapboard, a wireless gaming keyboard.

Phantom.net is already taking preorders for the Lapboard despite the fact that the company has yet to secure funding to manufacture the keyboards. That’s right, the Lapboard you just ordered does not yet exist! Phantom Entertainment also delayed the launch of their gaming keyboard until November. These postponements may continue until funding is secured.

To make matters worse, Phantom Entertainment seems to have missed the mark on pricing their gaming keyboard. At a posh $129.95, the Lapboard will by far be the most expensive gaming keyboard out on the market. In contrast, the Saitek Eclipse, Ideazon ZBoard and Wolfking are all selling for around $50. The top-selling Logitech G15 is selling for just $57 on Amazon.com.

The Lapboard is wireless, but otherwise pales in comparison to the other gaming keyboards already on the market. The Lapboard does not yet have any macros, a must for hard-core gamers. The keys are not backlit for playing in the dark. And most surprisingly, there is no LCD screen for keeping track of in-game stats and other pertinent information.

The obvious question becomes, why the $129.95 price tag? Without the must-have gaming features, the Lapboard acts more like a regular wireless keyboard for casual surfers. We'd pass.

The market agrees. Despite the supposed launch looming in a couple months, the stock has yet to break the $.02 mark. With another 600,000,000 diluted shares authorized to sell at the last shareholder meeting, we’d stay away from this company until significant funding is secured. Until then, it should float back to subpenny territory.

I linked your article on Raging Bull. Watch out, there's a lot of angry pumpers who may start posting hate messages on your blog. They like to ignore these facts!

The G15 was at least that when it came out and now sells on its site for $99.99. This is a new product and the hoping to get a good buzz going, but as with everthing else the price will come down in 6 months or so.

There's never a shortage of suckers in the world. I guess you guys also invest in those stocks that are advertised in spam messages you get every day in your mailbox too.

If you do, feel comfortable that you are also helping the Russian mafia.
