Indeed, I thought about getting one of these when I saw some kid on a cable show playing the Spectrum classic Booty on it. They ain't too expensive either.

Yeah, the prospect of bring able to play all those classic games on a handheld makes me salivate. Although with the Speccy games they were designed specifically for the keyboard (or a Kempston joystick) but I'm sure they port over well.

A lunchtime of research shows I might be better off waiting a while

(remembers the initial problems with the Spectrum & BBC Micro)

Interesting, perhaps it might be for the best to wait a bit. Still looks like a top gizmo though.

Don't like the sound of all that battery malarkey, 45 minute lifespan? Shocked
