Infinium Labs lives, gives status report

— 1:13 PM on May 31, 2006

Infinium Labs, the company behind the aptly-named Phantom game console, has provided an operations update reminding everyone that it's still in business. The company says its Phantom Lapboard—a wireless keyboard and mouse combo designed to fit on a user's lap—is still on track for a release in October. The Lapboard was originally expected to ship in the second quarter of this year, but it was delayed a few weeks ago.

"We are on a fast pace crossing over the threshold of manufacturing and marketing our first product, the Phantom Lapboard," noted Greg Koler, Infinium Labs' President and CEO. "Everything is on schedule for first arrivals of the Phantom Lapboard this October in the US market."

The Company is moving forward with Itron Technology Inc., a worldwide leading manufacturer and marketer of input devices such as keyboards and mice, to manufacture the Phantom(R) Lapboard, a combination keyboard/mouse peripheral designed to enhance video game play on PCs. The Company will evaluate prototypes in June and July and plans to proceed with manufacturing production in September to meet its October shipping date.

Infinium says it is working out agreements with third parties to handle the distribution, support, and marketing of the Lapboard in both the U.S. and Europe. If the Lapboard successfully makes it out the door, it'll be Infinium's first shipping product since the company was founded in 2002. The company's Phantom Game Service is also still in the pipeline, but no release date is given. Instead, Infinium claims to be "engaged in discussions to license the Phantom Game Service technology to well-established manufacturers of PCs and digital home entertainment centers."
