<computer> A Personal Digital Assistant produced by Apple Computer. The
Newton provides a clever, user-friendly interface and relies solely on pen-based
input. Eagerly anticipated, the Newton uses handwriting recognition software to
"learn" the users handwriting and provide reliable character recognition.
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.
