Re: Bluetooth Spectrum Keyboard

Can only guess that with the interest in and press for the Vega, and to a lesser extent the keyboard itself now it's getting mainstream coverage, leads Elite to believe it'll sell at doubled price.

Re: Bluetooth Spectrum Keyboard

Well i read that existing apps can work with this. Might send Jon Needle a message to see how easy this is for Spectaculator, would be amazing if that worked !

Re: Bluetooth Spectrum Keyboard

With the dodginess over payments I reduced my pledge to a quid -- worth it to get access to all updates and be able to comment on the debacle -- a few days before the Kickstarter ended. I'd be happy to see it come good, but no Spectaculator compatibility would equal no sale.

Re: 3DS Games discussion/Collecting thread

I had some trouble with Zavvi when I bought the original 3DS. Pre-ordered it early and they later reduced the price, but Zavvi charged the original price. Had to phone a couple of times for a refund of the difference.
