Apple Newton Clone: Sharp Expertpad

Apple licensed the Newton operating system to a few manufacturers. Sharp was one of them, and they released a Sharp Expertpad.

I pulled this out of my closet the other day and thought I'd post some high quality photos of it.

Nice. It was probably because Sharp made the Newtons (at least at first).

An old image of both Arn's and my handheld collection together on the floor of his old apartment.



Photo taken in 1997, I believe. You can see his Sharp Expertpad sitting in there. Two, actually.

Nice collection, makes my Newt collection look very average. Is that a 110 and a 2100 clear prototype I see there? Care to give us a run down of the models shown here?
