Well there's nothing else to say. The topic says it all.

This post looks a lot like spam bro, the short URL could be anything and there's not much of a description of the link!
Anyway, for other peoples benefit I cautiously took a look.

A New Speccy Is coming
Fall in love again
Relive the experience of opening a box and getting a brand new Spectrum that feels as revolutionary as the original back in its heyday. Plug it in and start enjoying your beautifully designed new computer.

Fully compatible
The Spectrum Next is a reimplementation of the original at hardware level, ensuring it runs all the software out there -- old and new. And it's also compatible with most expansions made for the ZX Spectrum.

Built for tomorrow
Faster, more memory, new video modes, SD storage, HDMI output... It takes the Speccy to a whole new level. And it's totally open source, so the community can expand, improve and take it into the future.

It's probably a ZX Uno in a box that hasn't been planned beyond the 3D rendering stage yet.

Wonder how 32 column text looks like on a standard HD LCD via HDMI.
Probably good for me with failing eye sight.

Well you are right.
I'm sorry for this.
Next time I'll be more careful and make a more detailed post.

Thank you.

Hi,
Sorry but that is not true.
There is already a prototype that is working.

Here are some links that I have found on YouTube.

This one is in Brasilian/Portuguese but it has subtitles.

This one is a more detailed but has some sound issues.

Interesting. I hope this is the beginning of a new trend to recreeate classic machines. As much as I like the Spectrum I'd love to see a new Falcon clone too. It would be amazing to have a Falcon machine in a Mega ST style case with inverted key colours! A CPU bump would be nice too.

I second Frank B. A full compatible Falcon machine, full compatible, with USB, HDMI, would be a must have for me.

it looks cool but theres no reason our MISTs cant do all this - the speccy core is getting better all the time and maybe the actual MIST firmware USB will be improved to support more keyboards and maybe even bluetooth controllers !!!

I like the Mist, but a Mist is not a new Falcon compatible... IMHO.

Well since you mention that, I was hoping the Sinclair spectrum core would simulate other machines, for example the Sam coupe, timex 2048, 2068, ULA plus and so one. I know that this is a lot to ask but we are in the right way. If the cores of the spectnext were open source I think it would be simple to port them ( since they use an cyclone II ) and make the spectrum core even better.

About the firmware I've suggested that it would be some kind of operating system ( NuttX OS - http://nuttx.org ) but that is a huge project, but it would open a new world of possibilities, for example it would be very simple to implement drivers for several hardware ( Bluetooth, network cards, external hard drives, etc h and make them a simple device that the core would access, but I think that is on the todo list because of its complexity.

The work done until now makes the mist a beautiful and wonderful retro platform, so guys this post was only to share other rather new platform that implements what we all love.

Best regards.

I don't know why they gave that short URL. The actual web site address is: http://www.specnext.com/ which is hardly long!

If this Spectrum Next delivers on what is promised, I think, for me, it would be hard to resist...

I am currently tempted by the Recreated Spectrum - essentially the rubber-style keyboard: http://sinclair.recreatedzxspectrum.com/. Has anyone tried this? Could it work with a Spectrum core on the MIST? (They seem to have an 'unlocking system' currently set up, so it doesn't appear to work as an ordinary USB keyboard.)

You know the 'Recreated Spectrum' is basically a Spectrum styled bluetooth keyboard which connects to an App running on either an Android or iOS device to do the actual Spectrumming? If you don't already have an iOS or Android tablet, you need to add the cost of one to the already high cost of the 'Recreated Spectrum' package.

I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole, but if the Spectrum Vega people came to their senses and added the missing keyboard to the Vega, then I might take an interest in the Vega.

As for the NEXT, it's too early to say. But compare it with:-

-A real Spectrum: Widely available second hand and still much cheaper than any of the retro remakes
-Emulated Spectrum: Spectrum emulators for PC are so good now that you hardly need a hardware version at all.

Edited my reply as I was wrong.

There is a guy on the project page who has experience with this stuff and has built a board called the TBBlue that gives ZX compatible edges to an FPGA.

Finally, a Speccy remake with a full keyboard... :D
