[NTLK] CNET UK: Newton vs iPhone

      NCU worked, though none of the packages I downloaded to the PB  
1400 would install.  (NIE files would install, but would not work  
when tapped.)  The 130 backs up via NCU, and I did a restore after  
losing the ability to get into the 'Extras' folder following attempts  
to load packages.
      My next question is:  Are there any 130 users out there who  
would be willing to share what they can and can't do with their  
Newts?  I would be happy with dial-up e-mail, e-books, and a few  
other apps (scientific & financial calculator & Small Talk). If  
anyone has experiences or insight to share on theses items, I'd be
