When the Newton was killed off I tried a WinCE Phillips thing. It was
the WORST user experience I have ever had, and like all other Philips
products I have ever bought, the hardware was continually breaking. I
seem to remember I lasted about 3 months before going out and buying a
Handspring.

Cheers,
Tom
