I expect that Apple will release a new PDA in the near future.... Maybe It will be called the.....?
Re: New Apple PDA
it's never gonna happen so don't even think about it.
and if you want a good apple pda, then i recommend a newton mp 2100.
wha ya mean
how much u wanna bet?
bahhhhhhhh too much apple pda talk i think after mw paris, ppl should stop talking bout an apple pda till like a few weeks b4 mwsf lol
Re: wha ya mean
that the newton is good, or that there's no way in hell that they will make a pda?
if they do in fact do a pda, i will start a mac rumors public apology thread, exclusively to tell you that im sorry. then i will create a new username and start at newbie status all over again
Re: wha ya mean
I'll tell you what....if Apple comes out with a pda (that's a PDA....not a phone/organizer but just a PDA) then I'll publicly admit that Steve Jobs is a total liar and I'll never trust him again.
He didn't actually say there would be no Apple PDA in the future. He "downplayed" the possibility. But he could bring out any device, PDA or PDA-like and that would not make him a liar.
That said, I believe it is fairly unlikely at the moment.
But if they call it an iWalk I am going to jump off a cliff. That would be so embarrassing.
Wait a sec...
I thought that I heard somewhere that Steve Jobs said that he would never have Apple release a PDA.
As for an iPhone, well inkwell is just to fine an example.
PDA's are dead...
I, for one, waisted my money on my Handspring Visor. I never use it.
The new thing is small phones that will take over PDA's work, as well as other tasks. These add on's, or built in's will prolly include a still and motion video camera, mp3 player, maybe a real time translator...........
NO APPLE PDA !
Why would they call it the "Newton Again"? That's a silly name.
I think a PDA is a much better idea than a phone. I'm happy with my sprint PCS cellular, and I'm not happy with my Palm Pilot. If Apple does come out with a PDA, it had better have a lite version of OS X, and not run the stupid Palm OS software.
Say again...I didn't quite hear
Re: Wait a sec...
>(P-Worm) I thought that I heard somewhere that Steve Jobs said that he would never have Apple release a PDA.
This was a while back.
Hey eye, go get your flamethrower, were havin a BBQ.
AHHHHHHHHH. DUCK AND COVER! The apple PDA crap is back! Well i guess we can let you off cuz ur a newbie, but u better learn pretty quick that the two words Apple and PDA used in conjunction in the the hardware rumors section is a big no-no. We also cant have the idea spring back up after we had to kill it during the MWNY era.
I dont want a PDA
I want an ibook that is a little smaller than the newton. Just take out the big screen, keyboard, and cd. Keep all the connections and ad a little floating pallete to make navigation easier in OS X. It would be like a Pocket PC but it would have the same power as the ibook because all the guts would be almost the same. Apple already has all the parts, the only problem is the price. So, right now even in the 21st century, the price on this kind of technology done right would be too high for the average user. Maybe they would do better to just make an iBook under a thousand. It would be slow for power users, but just fine for school.
Re: New Apple PDA
it wont be strictly a pda...more of an all purpose device (pda, ipod, portable quicktime, some games, lo-qual photo, etc) all on a color screen.
Re: Re: New Apple PDA
U sure know how to make the scorned apple pda myth seem pretty appealing with your "all in one" device. Maybe we could call it the all-in-wonder mac (hehe ripping off ATI is so great...)
I dont think so
I dont think that Apple will put out a PDA... I would like to see it happen.. but it wont. What I do think well happen is Apple will put out a next gen cell phone with PDA functions but will not go as fare as the trio or some other the other PDA/phones. It will be not much larger than the cell phones we have not.. but with a lot more features.
If it had a USB port on it and a terminal app that I can use to tip and use it as a mini console... I would buy 3 of them....
Maybe I sould just get a Sharp Zaurus... but I really want an Apple!
If Apple comes out with an iPhone... I will grap it up in a second!
I think they will just update the iPod with a bigger, color screen and some more features (earbud for iphone, stylus and inkwell). It would run OS X version 10.3 House Cat*(Small).
Edit: eye, this is not a PDA, it is a better iPod.

hey dude u stole my made up name for osx 10.3!!! Give me credit next time u call any OSX version house cat!

Sorry man. Great minds think alike. I just came up with that off the top of my head but i might as well give you credit
whoa u did. thats pretty cool. Guess i gotta give u creit also. Sry i came on so strong.
i think apple shouldnt even go near a pda, i think pdas will just die in a year or so... CELLPHONES are where the money i at...
