There are various reasons why I actually believe this rumor this time

Although I think usage of terms such as "The New Newton" and "PDA" are

What I would expect is a larger version of an iPhone / iPod Touch
device that competes with devices like the Nokia N800, PepperPad, HTC
Advantage -- more "internet tablet" than PDA.

It certainly won't have anything to do with the NewtonOS or Newton

I don't actually know anything. That's just my hunch.
