Newton MessagePad & eMate

Small Dog has been around a long time and seen a lot of Apple products come and go, but none has had such a devout group of users as the Newton. I still still have a MessagePad 2100 in daily use and you’ll find it on my desk and tagging along to meetings.

Sadly, there’s not much left that we carry that is compatible, but that which is you’ll find listed on this page. Drop me an email if you want to share Newton stories or if you need help using a Newton in these days ruled by iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.
