Apple Newton

<computer> A Personal Digital Assistant produced by Apple Computer.

The Newton provides a clever, user-friendly interface and relies solely on pen-based input.

Various third-party software applications are available and add-on peripherals like wireless modems for Internet access are being sold by Apple Computer, Inc. and its licensees.

Newton Inc.'s NewtonOS competes with Microsoft Corporation's Windows CE, and was to be compatible with DEC's StrongARM SA-1100, an embedded 200MHz microprocessor, which was due in 1998.
