Sinclair's ZX Spectrum is set to be relaunched by UK developer Elite in 2012 to celebrate the classic gaming computer's 30th anniversary.
Those gamers of a certain age will no doubt fondly remember the ZX Spectrum from the early-to-mid 1980s, with Elite set to cash in on the current popularity of retro gaming amongst this demographic.
Wireless ZX Spectrum 2012
The Telegraph reports that the studio – who originally developed many of the best ZX Spectrum games – will soon release a wireless replica of Sir Clive's all-in-one keyboard gaming computer.
Details beyond this are scarce, with speculation that the 'new' Spectrum may well work wirelessly with the Apple iPhone and other peripherals.
Elite currently does a decent business re-developing a classic range of the Speccie's original smash hit games for smartphones.
Would a new ZX Spectrum work? Would anybody actually buy it? Or is this a simple example of retro-irony gone insane?
TechRadar has contacted Elite for further details on its plans to re-release the Spectrum.
