Yes...and let's not forget the best reason (for me at least) to choose the Newt over the iPAQ:

It's not Windows!


>It's a great little device...despite its Windows Mobile 2003 OS and non-HWR capabilities...but why carry two? Performance-wise, it's all over the Newton--plays music, it's small and compact, has a full color screen...but I'll take the MP any day.

>	The Newton for what it is can be quite nice, and while setup for applications on the Newton might take some doing the end result is quite nice.
>	As for the hotspot finder, I say ask the people that work at the location.  Maybe they won't know THAT particular time, but you can get it worked out in a visit or two.  Or just ask someone with a laptop to look it up.
>	Of course, what keeps the Newton from having an app that can do it?
