Kickstarter® Appeal for the Bluetooth® ZX Spectrum® - Hits 10% of Goal in 12 Hours

PRESS RELEASE – 23 rd December, 2013 - Lichfield, England

Elite’s MD, Steve Wilcox exclaimed, “"Hitting 10% of our project goal in a little over 12 hours is fabulous start to the Kickstarter appeal for the Bluetooth ZX Spectrum. Nonetheless, we know we've set ourselves a VERY demanding goal - fewer than 1% of successful Kickstarter appeals achieve such an elevated goal. We'll be working hard, alongside our backers and supporters, throughout the holidays and beyond to ensure that we build on this positive start and realise our objective ... recreating the ZX Spectrum.” Source: http://www.kickstarter.com/help/stats

The recreated Sinclair ZX Spectrum will be a Bluetooth keyboard, initially for iOS and subsequently for Android and Windows phones and tablets (as well as for PCs and Macs), in the form-factor of a 48K Sinclair ZX Spectrum.
