It's very likely to be Intel Series II linear flash, which I don't
believe have hardware-level wear leveling implementations.
However, the Newton OS' storage layer does apparently attempt to batch
and distribute card writes to improve performance and flash longevity.
I found this information in the list archives, though I couldn't find a
primary source for it in my seconds of searching. If anyone knows where
this is documented, please chime in.
