February 17th, 2010

This time, Jon Rettinger promises more reviews of the actual Newton OS features, which should be fun.

NewtVid: Newton MessagePad 2100 unboxing

September 18th, 2008

Okay, so it’s not an original MP2100 unboxing, but the guy from still seems excited.

One thing he got wrong: he said the Newton didn’t have Wifi, which isn’t quite right. You just need a few add-ons.

Where to find Newton photos

It’s pretty universal that Apple product fans love to take pictures of their conquests. Unboxing photo galleries, videos of guys opening the first iPhone boxes, even retro photo tours – they all crop up from time to time on the Apple blogs (I’m guilty myself).

Sadly, however, unboxing a used Newton you just picked up on eBay doesn’t explode with excitement like today’s products. Thankfully, a group of Flickr users have dedicated a group to Newtonism that’s bursting with MessagePad photos of every sort.

If there’s a mayor of Newton Flickr City, it has to be Sonny Hung, who hosts tons of photo sets of his Newton finds.

Others are pretty great, too, including group founder Grant Hutchinson.

If you’re a Flickr user and know your way around a camera’s macro setting, be sure to snap some shots of your own Newton and share them with the group. New photo uploads are few and far between. It’s always nice to see some new ones.
