    Is Internet access possible on a Newton Messagepad 2100? I often see these for sale on places like Ebay, flea markets, etc. I'm thinking it would make for a nice way to store data, jot down some notes, play a few games (if there are any?), etc. Text only Internet would be nice, but only if I can get anything other then dialup Internet.

    Anyone know if this is possible? :D

    Yes its possible, but not terribly useful. I am yet to come across a web browser for Newton that isn't all text based. With modern websites being made up with so much flash and images, Newton browsing is kinda tough. Pages are pretty slow to load and if you're using a wifi card it drains a good bit of battery.
