New Electronic Chess Industry Blog

Filed under: Chess Miscellaneous — Baron Turner @ 6:27 pm

Growingly in chess circles, Electronic chess as an industry is a critical part of chess retailing, and a new blog at www.chess-computers.co.uk does a great job of showing how it works - especially in the UK. There’s a post on who dominates chess computer sales in the country and who they come from. It has a post on the best suppliers and a much needed discussion on which is the best top end chess computer out of the Excalibur Grandmaster and the Novag Citrine. We like the opinion on Saitek’s choice to delist their best product - the Expert, and agree with the comments on the quality finish of the Citrine. Thumbs up guys! More of the same - it’s great reading.

The New Excalibur Handheld - a boon to Chess Retailers

Filed under: Chess Miscellaneous — Baron Turner @ 11:39 pm

Wow! As Excalibur were unresponsive to our demands for more stock of the 404-D talking touch chess computer - what a result - a new chess computer that beats it’s competitors into first place several times over. The new handheld makes the most of their borrowed ‘New York Times’ brand phrase and includes a backlight along with their already enhanced LCD graphics. The NY22 has been a handheld in the past with the NYT name, but what a great way to use the NYT cache and the head start they had with the 404-D! Well done Excalibur - and may this lead to enhanced customer (aka retailer) relations to match the enhanced chess computer model!
