This month, the first production units of the Recreated ZX Spectrum were manufactured using the production tooling. These are the ‘T1’ and the ‘T2’ units.
In preparation for production and to support forthcoming marketing communications, the following new infographic, ‘How to set up your Recreated ZX Spectrum …’ is being rolled out by our resellers.
The original Sinclair ZX Spectrum was a genuinely innovative device. It was so innovative that its packaging was dominated by an infographic showing the interrelationship of the parts which, when combined, made it a fully functioning system. The original unit cannot be used on its own.
As with the original, the Recreated ZX Spectrum is a genuinely innovative device. Indeed, it is so innovative that its packing will also be dominated by this new (but reassuringly familiar) infographic showing the interrelationship of the parts which, when combined, make it a fully functioning system. This new infographic will be an important part of our marketing message in the weeks and months ahead, as it’s vital to our communication of just how innovative a Recreated ZX Spectrum really is.
Note: The eagle-eyed will note that the new infographic draws heavily upon and pays homage to the infographic which dominated the packaging of the original device.
More production units of the Recreated ZX Spectrum will be arriving this month or very soon after. When they do we’ll be contacting backers and inviting them to participate in pre-release testing of the recreated device and the associated apps and applications. Keep an eye on your e-mail inbox for further details and an invitation to participate.
Thereafter and just as soon as we know when we’ll have enough of them, we’ll be contacting backers and those who have pledged for / pre-ordered a recreated device - since the Kickstarter appeal closed - to notify them of the arrangements for despatch.
Until then, thanks for your continued support.
