Recently I set aside my MP2100s, after years of daily use. In their
place I carry a smartphone, a T-Mobile myTouch 3G slide. It does mail,
texting, Facebook, Twitter, and the web. But it can't touch the Newton
when it comes to writing.

I would like to use my Newtons more but battery issues get in the way. I
have had repeated problems with corroded battery contacts. When I
finally get one to wake up I have to run though the date/time set

Have I reached the point where I should take one apart?
