The ghost of Ponzi schemes past.
I was doing a bit of research for the NYT on the Phantom Lapboard and I remembered that Alienware was supposed to carry it online. After trying to pry a photo out of Phantom itself, I emailed Alienware to ask if they had a photo. Their reply was fairly curt:
Alienware does not carry the Phantom lapboard. There were plans a couple months ago, but from what I was told, Phantom couldn’t meet our unit/delivery needs.
I saw the Lapboard last year and if it had come from Logitech or Belkin or any of the peripheral guys, it would have been a fairly good product. However, given Phantom’s track record of shady dealings, I wonder just what’s going on. Has anyone ordered and received the Lapboard yet?
