Its over, the relationship with the Newton has ended. It was a whirlwind experience. It started with a stumble into splorp.blog along with some lurking on Newtontalk. I was totally hooked. Purchased my first Newton from eBay. When it arrived it was instant love. This device was everything I had come to expect and more. I even started this blog to conical the Newton experience. From the information gleaned at Newtontalk and the many sites it referenced I was able to configure my Newton to connect with my G4 via serial cable, ethernet, and 802.11b. Even managed to post to my blog with the little guy. I was happy. I was content. Sold my Handspring Visor and Jornada on eBay and went totally Newton. The problem started when Palm released the Tungsten C. The advertisement caught my eye. Thought this might be the 802.11b magic I was looking for and I bought one. The intent was to just try it out then return it. It couldn't possible compete with my Newton. As expected, it could not compete and I returned it as planned. Unfortunately I returned it for a Tungsten T. Just wanted to check it out. Well, now my Newton's are gone and I'm a Tungsten T guy. The Newton is still a very remarkable devise, but for me the Tungsten T just does it.
Well, I did it. Went out and picked up a Tungsten C PDA. Found it to be a really slick device. Nice bright colorful screen. Built in 802.11b, which connected to my airport with zero effort. The provided browser worked well. Displayed any site. Of course with your average site you only see a small part of the page. Sites designed for PDA's were great. Had a terrible time getting the unit to sync. Don't know what I did that finally got it to work. Found that it used Grafiti 2 and had no traditional palm writing areas. It has a 400mhz processor and is fast. The screen is fantastic. However, Grafiti 2, no traditional writing area, and keypad were just too difficult. So returned it. However, did pick up a Tungsten T. Just had to check out the blue tooth feature. I use a Sony Ericson T68i phone and just love syncing with my G4 using blue tooth. The Tungsten T worked flawlessly. Synced on the first attempt. Blue tooth connected effortlessly. The screen is bright clear and colorful. It has a slower processor, but seems just as fast as the C. It has a traditional palm writing area, and the original Grafiti. Seems to do a much better job recognizing my handwriting then my old Handspring Visor. It is definitely easy to read. Really never expected to keep it. However, found it to be an excellent tool. Sadly, it has replaced my Newton as my primary information tool.
