Sinclair brand SD card I also want it. 8-)

In the photo, I saw Wifi module, RTC circuit, expansion memory. Raspberry pi ZERO accelerator is a terminal only, there is no module.
I'd like to see the "Raspberry pi ZERO" soldered by the GPIO connector as soon as possible, I also want to know the background to the procurement of large quantities.

P.S. Is our FM sound generator implemented in "Next"? I became uneasy.
Last weekend, the next generation version of "ZX-Uno" "ZXDOS" appeared.
For that, it seems to be said that MS-DOS-like file format of "MSX" can be used, V9938 VDP of "MSX2" and others, Jotego's FM sound core (YM2151 and others) are implemented.

Additional notes: Specification of ZX-Uno's next-generation project "ZX-Dos (Spanish)". FPGA SLX16, SDRAM 32M, SRAM512K, 18bitDAC-VGA. The mounting scale is 99% used in the "MSX2+" core (Z80 5MHz turbo mode, MSXDOS2, VDP-V9950, OPLL, SCC-I). However, even with the original model based on SLX9, PC/XT core is operating with SRAM2MB expansion.

Some lucky people can now start waiting for their Next. Meanwhile I will have to wait and hope for another batch later.

*A bit envious*.

It's a product of it's own - I would pay for some extra Sinclair Sd Cards (for my vDriveZX, DivMMC, ...) :-)

Completely missed this update! Kickstarter stopped emailing me the updates because my mail bounced a couple of times. I was checking on specnext.com for news updates.. but there were none on the news feed there either.

In a way, perhaps I shouldn't have looked at all and it could have just been a spectacular surprise when my next rocks up in the post?

I have a feeling that those black PSU boxes might be mainly there to give people something to do while anxiously awaiting the keyboard :)

Hoping for a new update soon. I’m sure I’m not the only one anxious for any scrap of news!
