iPhone Vs Newton

Oh. My. God. I just realized. iPhone’s “widescreen” ultra-hyped screen has the exact same resolution as the Newton has which was released over 15 years ago! 320×480. Honestly, the Newton was a much more revolutionary device than the iPhone is.

Actually, the original Newton MessagePad had a 336×240 screen. It took several years (1996) to get to a 320×480 screen. Interestingly, the processor in the MP2000 is more powerful than what can be found in many current cell phones.
