What, precisely, are the connections on the Newton?
Areyou referring to the Newton Interconnect Port, that weird 26 pin
connector on the mp2k? There's a serial adaptor that Apple makes that
converts that to a mini-din 9 connector.

The actual physical hardware of the Newtons is identical no matter which
part of the world you go to...the mp2k uses a weird custom connector with
an adaptor for normal serial connectors, and the rest of them have minidin
8 connectors directly on them.
