I’ve always been a fan of the old Apple Newton PDA. They were fantastic, and well ahead of their time. I keep looking at iPods and thinking what could have been. But if iPods were Newtons, they wouldn’t be nearly as popular. But now with the iPhone launch rumoured to be imminent (my official stance is “yeah right, not yet”, but I’m happy to be wrong, and I’ve got some money to spend in that direction…), a Newton/iPod mix would be reallllly nice.

But I digress. Check out this Newton vs Samsung UMPC smackdown at C|Net UK.
