Mark.
I remember talking to the Motorola engineer several
years ago when he wrote the driver software for the
Newton (the Boston bicycle police department used a
CDPD equipped Newton to access the computer at the
dispatch)

I remember sending someone on this list a name and a
number of the engineer to whom I talked to (it was
about 6 months ago) and I think that I no longer have
it available...I will check on my older archived
Newton 120 that I actually ran the driver on.

Not to discourage you though, the driver for the 100c
behaved similarly to the one for the AllPoints Card.
It didn't interface with NIE and it required
activating a seperate program to send and receive
mail. It was not an on-all-the-time kind of thing.

On a seperate note, check into the Sierra Wireless
modem. I know that the engineers were contemplating a
Newton sollution for that...Never heard anything about
it after the Wireless World convention in 98 though.
