Is Google’s Android mobile platform the Newton fan’s savior at bringing a Newton-clone app to fruition?
Because of the licensing agreement, a Newton app is probably impossible. But on the open-source Android OS and its new Android Market, the dream of a modern-day Einstein hack might be realized.
Now that Android has its own “app store,” some bootstrapping developer could do something really cool. A touch screen, a stylus, some sort of handwriting recognition, and access to the OS’s dates and contacts and notes, and you might be all set.
I’m positive its nowhere near that simple to develop a Newton emulator for a mobile phone. But one can dream, right?
