Apple isn't going to release another PDA. Don't hold your breath.
I have tried out the Zaurus SL-5500 (my father owns one), and IMHO it follows
the computer-type paradigm too closely to be compared to the Newton. It has
some nice features, but once you've used the Newton, you might find that
having to tap File-->Save on a Zaurus or iPaq a foreign concept, when the
Newton automatically remembers everything you enter. Among other things, like
HWR not being ubiquitous across the OS.
