BIT 60

This obscure computer is compatible with the Atari VCS 2600 game system. This feature is typical of eastern countries such has Korea or Honk-Kong where copyrights were not very respected. The Laser 2001 for example is also known to accept Colecovision and Atari cartridges through a special extension. The Hanimex Pencil II was also supposed to accept Colecovision cartridges. And indeed, the cartridge slot of the BIT-60 is similar to the VCS-2600 one.

The BIT 60 is equipped with a CPU 6502 microprocessor with two clock modes. In computer mode it runs at 0.59MHz and in game mode at 1.19MHz.

There are at least two different versions of the BIT-60 (see more pictures section). The one pictured here with a chicklet keyboard, two joystick ports on the front side and two buttons on the left of the cartridge slot (start & select ), and a later model with a different case, a mechanical keyboard and no more joystick ports on the front...

The BIT-60 and its brother the BIT-90 had no success and disappeared quickly surely because of copyright issues.

We need more info about this computer ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.
