Bluetooth ZX Spectrum Kickstarter

SpecBlueElite Systems have announced that they will be launching a Kickstarter campaign for a Sinclair ZX Spectrum Bluetooth keyboard. Initially released for iOS and later for, Android and Windows phones, tablets, PCs and Macs.

When used with official apps, the Bluetooth ZX Spectrum will provide an authentic experience to play 100% original, officially licenced, paid-for Bluetooth ZX Spectrum games (and more) via a secure App Store environment. Either at launch or sometime later, the Bluetooth ZX Spectrum will also be ‘backwardly compatible’ with the existing and separately sold, ‘ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection’ apps, either by default or perhaps via an in-app purchase from within those apps.

Optionally, the Bluetooth ZX Spectrum can also be a Bluetooth keyboard for other apps and also applications running on PCs and Macs, making it possible to, say, type a letter on a PC using a Spectrum! Both the default and the optional functionality of the Bluetooth ZX Spectrum will be available at the time of the device’s launch. Details of how the optional functionality may be enabled will be revealed at a later date. The Bluetooth ZX Spectrum will have an end-user price of between £39.99 and £49.99 (plus delivery) and initially will be available for purchase online-only.
