Apple Newton vs. Apple iPhone
Posted on December 1, 2009 by eli courey
CNET UK has a funny and interesting article comparing Apple’s Newton to it’s successor, the iPhone.
From the article:
Today, we’ve taken the reigning champion, the very same Apple Newton Messagepad, out of retirement to put it up against a brand-new contender. This time, the opposition is no Windows-tainted experiment doomed to failure. Oh no — this time it’s the Newton’s very own grandchild, the iPhone 3GS.
It would be a little unfair to compare the two devices on a like for like basis. One’s a phone, for goodness sake, and one’s a 400-year-old tablet thingy. We’re going to take a relative look at each, focusing on how innovative they were for their respective times.
