> My memory is fuzzy on this so please correct me: the other problem is out of the box the Newton doesn’t talk industry standard protocols over IrDA. Two Newtons can send and receive information between each other (although I think there are limitations between 1.0 & 2.0), but a Newton doesn’t know what to do when trying to talk with a PC, late 90’s PDA, or modern smartphone.
> Eckhart Köppen wrote some apps for the Newton to make IrDA (and Bluetooth) transfers possible. "Nitro adds the TinyTP, IrCOMM and IrOBEX missing layers via a Newton OS Communication Tool… "Neo installs three OBEX transports (one for Bluetooth, one for IrDA, one for TCP/IP) which can be used to send and receive objects in the same manner as any other transport (e.g. email)…” They work, but there are limitations. Neo can only send/receive text based information. Eckhart had planned to add more capability for Neo, but the project was never finished. Even if you did find a smartphone with IrOBEX support sending packages won’t be possible.

> Do smartphones still support OBEX? I’ve not used it in almost 10 years. I remember sharing ringtones from with friends from flip phones (unless they were on Verizon in the US who crippled the ability) over Bluetooth. That was an OBEX transfer.
