i was reading the other thread about how there are already too many PDA's out there. i just want to give my 2 cents on the matter.

im a cs student at purdue university and i have this (somewhat) old sharp prganiser that i added a little apple to avec some superglue. every time i take it out, to jot something down someone asks, "hey man, is that a newton". and today it happened again for almost the tenth time.

and thats when i realised.

there are too many palms out there. everyone has either a PalmV or a PalmIII or nowadays a m505. and those who are into pocketpc have pocketpcs. its all there is. and the other ones dont stand out at least now since Psion Closed down(god rest their poor souls).

i mean, its been so long since the newton died but i still get people asking me about my own little psuedo-newton..

just thinking about a newton functional, aqua interface, wireless little beast.
