You heard that right, we’re one step closer to having a Newton running on non-Apple hardware. At the 2004 WWNC, Paul demoed Einstein, an emulator running on Mac OS X… At the 2006 Worldwide Newton Conference, we demonstrated that the soul of the Newton is not trapped within aging hardware. It’s ready to burst out and transfer its elegance and functionality into a new line of devices.” Wow, check out the picture of the Newton OS running on a Sharp Zaurus. [via] Link.
