Another lovely addition to the Newton family I must say, it is truly a great
device, although I haven't had chance to test it out rigorously. My Lucent
card showed up and I was getting my 2100 groovin' with wireless; it's more
just for fun than practicality though. It barely loads google and I have
become way to spoiled using the next best thing since the newton out of
apple in a quarter century the "iPod touch". OOops rambling there.......

I love the form factor of the MP130, it is after all more pocketable; even
though the volume differences are negligible (MP130 @ 40.46 cubic inches vs.
the MP2000 @ 42.9). The overall speed would be sorrily missed though: had it
even had a 50mhz processor I would switch but I find it too slow even for
transcribing small notes and ideas. I was looking at using it in my classes
this fall due to it's size and not requiring a dongle for keyboard use but
am going to stick with my MP2000U.

I find the MP110 NOS 1.2 faster than my MP130 2.0 for overall performance.
