Re: NTLK Hooking up my Newton 130 to a cellphone?

Sorry to hear you are unhappy with your phone.
I really like mine and are not ready to give up on it
just yet.
The interesting thing with the I888 is that it is a
"world phone". I travel a lot and this phone works in
the Us as well as Europe.
Secondly it has a built-in modem. I'm not sure if it's
going to work with my Newton. I need a cable to try
I have never seen one, but it should look like this:
In one end, the Ericsson phone plug and in the other
end a "Apple serial/modem 8-pin din-plug".
Have anyone seen such a cable?
The phone also has a "infrared eye", but it is uses
the IRDA protocol. I know the MP130 can't use it.
