If the phone would have a serial port and you would be able to build
an adapter,
you would still need a dedicated app on Newton I think.

Often happens that friends who have never heard about Newton, Inc
they take a look at the MessagePads on my workbench, and the reports
are always the same: the MP130 appears to be the most evolved device
of its category.
So I have to say that the MP2100 is the Lamborghini of PDAs, but they
insist on saying
that the MP130 has a more accurate other than beautiful design....
....and I completely agree.
