Newton 120 Messagepad
The Newton 120 was Apple's 3rd or 4th foray into the personal organiser market and features handwriting recognition that can even read MY handwriting....up to a point obviously, but as you can see in the last pic it didn't do too bad. I say 3rd or 4th because it depends on whether you count the original Newton, the OMP, since it was pretty awful :) The 110 quickly followed and was a bit better, though I remember playing with one in the early 90s and thought it was pretty poor then!
The 120 could use standard (Apple approved) PCMCIA cards and could use it's infra-red port to beam info via LocalTalk to whatever you had capable of receiving it.
This one came from Richard Cassidy and arrived with a load of extras including manuals, memory cards, PSUs, the not-oft-spotted docking station, software and a few rechargeable battery packs. Thanks Richard :) More pix when I dig the bag of goodies out!
