I've returned to the fold out of frustration with the various HWR offerings for the iPad. I wrote my entire PhD by hand on my Newton 2100 back in 2002 and continued to use my Newton until connecting proved too much for me to figure out. Got back to my Newton when I acquired a Pico Bluetooth card and used the functionality to great effect.
Now though, my iPad (4) has become my tool of choice, replacing my MacBook Pro and iMac for writing, lecturing, research etc. The thing is that I can't find anything as good as my Newton for HWR and I was wondering if anyone has had any success in pairing a Newton with an iPad, allowing direct transfer over Obex BT from the Newton to the iPad. This would be a real bonus for me, and I sincerely hope that someone has a positive answer for me.
I realize that emailing notes is an option, but I don't want to have to swap cards all the time and have not had any recent success connecting my Newton to my home network. So really, either would do: connecting via bluetooth to my iPad, or fool proof wifi setup connectivity. I have an Orinoco Gold card, a Newton 2100 and a Pico Bluetooth card.
