Wow, nice find! I already found texts about C64 Speakeasy, but without photo. I think just same name... But now there is a evidence!

Anyway it is can be used on any computer where any 8 bit I/O port available.

As I found, for C64 it was two different Speakeasy devices:

Speakeasy from PPP (Speakeasy-C from Personal Peripheral Products)
And this Speakeasy from Aztec.

MicroHobby was mainly a Spectrum magazine. The meaning of the little article is: Look at how good is the Spectrum Basic that other unknown(ok, they say well-known) computer maker named Enterprise has launched a program to execute it on their computers....

The truth is.... you know it perfectly, the program makes an approximation of the crap inferior Sinclair Basic to the superior ANSI IS-Basic, that still needs to be almost rewritten. A skilled Basic programmer didn't need that "tool", and a noob user better can employ his time reading the Enterprise manual... I had, and still own both computers.

Really, who was the target public they were thinking on...? The other option, the document "Converting Spectrum programs to run on the Enterprise", was a much better move, time would tell.

Earlier I mentioned Domus magazine: the magazine can only be accessed by subscribers, but then I didn't notice the little "Preview" link.

Decided to correct my oversight.
A small preview of the page associated with Enterprise:
