Is THIS Apple's 'new Newton'?


SANTA BARBARA, CALIF. -- A contributor to the site Seeking Alpha claims to have "pieced together" a complete picture of the rumored forthcoming Apple ultra-mobile computer. He describes, essentially, a large iPhone with a 5.2" screen that will ship in the second half of 2008.

The device, he reports, will be designed to be "gripped with one hand on each side similar to a Sony PSP."

He claims that a source told him "Apple has shown significant interest in a 5.2? 800 x 480 pixel touch screen design by Balda, a German company."

Like the iPhone, the device won't have a physical keyboard, but instead a software-based one used with the touch screen. Here's the report.

Though all this makes a lot of sense, consider it rumor until confirmed by other credible sources.
