I had all the Newtons. From the first to the last and at the time they were awesome really. Pre PDA days. There were some excellent 3rd. party apps for it. Seems like the Touch has all the potential to be the next Newton with an official SDK coming out. Not to belittle the excellent apps that are here already but with a legitimate SDK it opens it up to major companies with the resources to produce some great apps. Adobe comes to mind for PDF and Comic Resources. Plus I'm sure Mobipocket will produce a compatible Book reader (hopefully with landscape option) for all the books in their library. I used to use my HP Ipaq for book reading from Mobipocket and it worked very well. The Touch is way clearer, bigger and faster. Should be a snitch. Roll on Feb.
