Pity !!! for a moment because of two earlier responses - jceaser + j.miller -
I thought perhaps there was a chance it would rotate in favour of righthanders.
However all is not lost-for some time now I have been using the stylus in my
left hand to activate the screen and its not too dificult.
Its preferable I think to read emails etc in landscape mode.
Your remarks about the 2000 series has been noted - I take it then it also
applies to the 2100 as well ?

Thanks a lot,

Des Meagher

  I'm suprised that nobody responded right away to this question. You can't rotate the MP130 screen so that the wide part of the case is on the left.
  MP130 and 120 models have hardware limitations that only allow two (out of a possible four) orientations. The MP2000 was the first Newton to allow a fully flexible orientation on the display.
  That means left-handed Newton users have the advantage in using landscape mode on older Newtons.
  I think the right/left hand bit will only affect software that checks for it.

    Is there a way of rotating my MP130 screen in the opposite
    direction -so I can grip it better with my left hand ...
