Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan revealed in a post on his personal Facebook page that two prototypes of the Project Valeria three screen laptop were stolen from the company booth at CES at around 4PM on Sunday. Tan added that all of the necessary forms were filed and the company is offering a $25,000 reward for "original information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of a criminal suspect." While it is possible that the thieves just wanted to get their hands on the latest technology, Tan is open to the possibility of industrial espionage. Tan added that the latter possibility "is cheating, and cheating doesn’t sit well with us. Penalties for such crimes are grievous and anyone who would do this clearly isn’t very smart."

Hope this does not lead to ALL dealers and content reviewers being banned from handling the products. That would be sad.
