What’s next? September 27, 2007

Posted by reverseengineer in Apple Inc., New Stuff, PDAs, Rumors.

It seems the MacPic in the previous post is prophetic; I was even idly ruminating about it as I was posting it. I own a working Newton Messagepad, and know first-hand how great it was way back when, even if it wasn’t its time yet.

And lo and behold, on the same day, AppleInsider‘s brought up the notion that next in line in the Jobs Saga is a new Newton, built on what has been, and what’s new. Given that, this Apple PDA rumor I sorta give a lot of credence to.

The hardware groundwork is there. The apps are there. The new OS is up to it. Multi-touch is begging for something meatier than a phone. They’ve done PDAs before. Steve has even hinted and clearly, and on record, alluded to it as something they’ve made but not yet released. What’s not to believe?
