I think they are working on a new handheld version with a built in screen? But a Speccy without a full keyboard is a bit silly imho, you can't really play a lot of games.

And the price of the new ones (which are emulated anyway) is just a bit silly when you think of the fact you can get a real one off ebay for not a lot at all. Mind you then you need to add an interface to get fast loading, so maybe it's not that expensive.

I see they have a screenshot of School Daze, which needs a keyboard to type things on the blackboard. I know it has a virtual keyboard but still...

Good point, well made.  Forgot about the blackboard stuff, guess I'll see how well that works...

Looks like its going the way of most kickstarters, ending in tears and litigation, and going all Donald Trump at the BBC.

Hope you do see it again, that seemed a reliable bet after they managed the Vega. :(

Just received a couple of updates via the Indiegogo page claiming it is going and going to ship in a few weeks.

Who knows what's going on here?  Don't really have a choice but to just wait and hope it pans out ok...
