Two New Newtons -- Apple today announced two new Newtons: the MessagePad 2000 and the eMate 300. The MessagePad 2000 is a significantly enhanced "traditional" MessagePad with a 161.9 MHz StrongARM 110 processor, 5 MB of RAM, two PC Card slots, a 100 dpi screen with 16 levels of grey, plus word-processing, spreadsheet, email, and Web software - all for an expected retail price of less than $1,000
Last week, Apple released Open Transport 1.1.1, its low-level system software which handles all aspects of networking, including AppleTalk and the Internet's TCP/IP protocols
