I first saw a Newton at a computer expo in Canberra sometime around the mid 90’s but funds wouldn’t stretch for such a fancy device.
It wasn’t untill the very late 90’s I managed to purchase a 130 from a friend for about $50. I used it for a while mainly for its calendar and contacts list before it gave way to Palm with built in phone capabilities which gave way to an iPhone.
I still have my 130 and thanks to Noahs film I dragged it out of storage and refreshed the batteries and have a play with it from time to time.
Id love to mount it in a frame and have it powered up displaying the weather or some other usefull information rather than have it live its days in a draw.
Its in need of a new backlight but other wise its still in excellent condition
