I think you'll find both of them in the Psion-section of Tucows. com
(start with: http://, choose your region and then go to
PDA, /epoc/communications5.htm). Haven't tried either one myself, though,
because of the RS 232 to DIN (Serial) adapter story (null modem cable
possibly needed). IRDA would be cool, but AFAIK Newton has a different
protocol and anyway you'd have to rotate the Newton screen by 180 just to
see what you're doing.
