Anyone who missed out on backing a ZX Spectrum Next in the last kickstarter, now has a chance of getting one they're back on the shop available as pre-order ( as we still have to know how many want them and make them yet. ) just so you know, they will probably be in the shop until the end of the year.
Backer 423 @ 37% funded, 10th hour. Base version. Shipping nr. 533. Received February 19, 2020.
Backer 1027 @ 141% funded, 10th minute.

Original 48K (issue 4b) with IF1, two microdrives and vDrive.

The shop orders are together with the kickstarter orders and all news about production is available through the kickstarter site. The news section of this forum also has links to individual ks updates. The latest is update #13 from August. A new one should be coming in the next week or two.


Chip shortages are the main problem and the team is looking at producing the machine itself in China to get around the shortages as the parts are still available in Asia at higher cost but the lower assembly cost in China keeps the machine on budget. The next update will have more information about production, something not completely known today.
