Hello Chris.

I've been using BackTalk in my MP2100 for a few months now. I am the lone
Newton user in an office packed full of PalmOS toys (various models...
III, IIIx, V, VI, Visor) - and the latest version of BackTalk is great
for the simple stuff like contact info, vCards and notes. I am waiting
for Smartdog to release some more Palm compatibility goodie that will
handle full calendaring, etc. So far , so good. These guys rock. I blow
the Palm users away with the fact that my "dead platform" can talk to
their wizzy new beer coasters.

 By the way, here is a snippet from the last Smartdog email newsletter:
