>What did you think of the QBE cf the Newton?

What the Newton could also have been.
>What was its stability like?

Well, it does 'try' to run Win.98SE. The 'distributor' claims Win.XP runs =
on it but the official website doesn't support this, the ebay auctions say =
I'll try Basilik soon.
>What was battery life like?

2+ hours. :-)
>What did you hate the most?

7 lbs., but sturdy. Imprecise touch-screen. HWR is lousy, but 'print' is =
good. And no more support.
>What was HWR like?

Yuck! Keyboard is a must.
>What was the Windows operating system like to use via a pen?

Since it's a 'layer', not the best. Fujitsu has a better system. But =
'drag-and-drop' is just as fun as on the Newt. On-lookers are amazed when =
I use either one with fingers.
>What was speed like?

400 Mhz PII. Most things ok, choppy with streaming anything. A 1-Ghz. P4 =
would be interesting...or a G4...
>Was MS Office apps like MS Word and MS Outlook pen-enabled?

You need the real pen-software, this one is too limited.
>What were they like to use?

The speech-to-text is ok, but needs alot of training.

What worked? What didn't?
>And that's just for starters...

The pen/touch is navigation, maybe 'Tablet PC' will be the useful one. :-p
