Don't know if they ported the Newton code or not... that was designed for an entirely different processor (StrongARM), and most of the team has been dispersed. But I *hope* they did!

Yes, the original Newton was a joke (I owned one), but once they gave it decent computing power (Newton 2000/2100), it was EXTRAORDINARILY accurate. Fast enough that I could take notes in meetings in realtime.

I wish some Palm licensee would build a PalmOS device with the Newton's form factor. (Okay, a bit thinner.) I miss it.
