Now for some good news… CNET UK recently did a mano-a-mano battle between a Newton MessagePad 2100 and a Samsung Q1 UMPC. Despite the 10-year age gap, the Newton comes out of the ring victorious! The Newton weathered several blows from the Q1’s color screen, Windows application support, and sync abilities, but it struck the knockout blow using its superior battery life (30 hours to 2.5 hours) and rock-bottom price ($50-100 vs. $1000). As a lifelong Newton user, I hold my Newton up in pride! Hear hear! Long live the Newton!

Still the best PDA around. Every time I think about Einstein and the move to new hardware I get excited – the Newton has a bright future ahead of it and people like yourself and Paul Guyout are to thank for it.
