Is this one of the "new" MP130's being sold on ebay by Frieghtquest?

If so, there has been some discussion on the comp.sys.newton.misc newsgroup about them and the wires in the stylus holder. I think that it was determined that the wires were something to do with the IR port and that some poor souls actually broke them trying to insert the stylus.

Sorry I cannot give any more information, but you might still find some info on the newsgroup.

hi people,

forgive me if this has come up already, but has anyone taken a look into the
stylus holder of their MP1x0? i just got a new MP130 and i noticed that
near the end of the stylus holder, there seems to be a little cable thing
(shine a flashlight in there and you'll see it). could this be the dreaded
cable that everyone talks about getting loose/ causing the jaggies problem?
