    Newton predated the PalmPilot by three years. The Newton was much larger than organizers like the Casio B.O.S.S. And the Sharp Wizard, and the one thing it had that was really different was handwriting recognition. But that didn't work well, and the Newton died a quick death.

    The Pilot was so successful because of Graffiti, which allowed you to "write" but didn't require anywhere near the memory and processing power that handwriting recognition does.

    If you have an Android phone you can install Graffiti from the Market, for free.

    Funny. I had the Dell one and I forget what it was called too.

    When the Newton came out, I remember thinking "Man! That thing is huge! Who wants to carry that in their pocket?". Look at us now...carrying around something even bigger, LOL.

    I also wanted a Toshiba Libretto soooo badly when they came out back circa 1998, but never bought it. A co-worker had one...jealous.

    Dell Axim

    I too still have a Newton,neat hardware/software way ahead of its time.

    Libretto are neat but have a keyboard so not really the same thing at all?

    I am fairly sure the first true pocket PC was the HP 95LX which was a true 100% IBM XT in a tiny case.
    I still have one of those and an 200Lx.

    Atari Portfolio was another early machine.

    Oh the good old days.

    No
    The portfolio was a mini PC looking thing.
    It was an amazing little machine.

    I just got off on that tangent going down memory lane with someone elses inclusion of the Libretto.
