I saw it once in a bookshop in Cairo, so it may not be a current model (as we in the 'Orient' tend to receive products much later, often when they're no longer sold in Europe or the US). How adjustable this space was I can't exactly recall (i.e. only Palm-sized?), but it was well-designed and looked adaptable.

A brief period when living in Sweden for a year saw me revert to a Filofax and iBook, but for eleven of those twelve years I've used a Newton. At one time it was the only computer I had for e-mail (I had a Colour Classic running 7.5 and no external modem). I have written everything from notes, lectures and lesson-plans to parts of my PhD thesis and outlines for novels. Spreadsheets for research projects and outlines for presentations (even slide-shows), accounting and project management, book-reading, sketching (great for quick birthday cards for friends, as iCards are generally so ghastly and impersonal), and family-trees (though the software is sadly limited by not being able to register it). As an internet device, my Newtons have always been wonderful - email, browsing and blogging and as long as I don't expect to do too much more than read the news,

Very interesting read Adrian, and you bring up some good points. I
personally type better than I write, but of course not on the newton. ;)
 And you have one little glitch there as the original 2000 was not
available till 1997 ;)
