a little history involving the Newton.

Want a good read about the PDA OSes of the past visit Tech News World and read the article here. A mention about Apple's "failed" Newton PDA as something other than the first real PDA. Almost a mention that it tried to compete with Palm and Pocket PC? Huh?
For a while, manufacturers were split into two main camps after Psion (the people who brought us Epoc, which is now called Symbian) left the foray: Palm OS and Pocket PC. And after the failed attempt by Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) (Apple Newton Messagepad), Palm OS dominated the PDA OS scene for a long while.
Why does it seem the author is using a distorted timeline? Hmm, more research indeed, if any one can comment with specific dates please do.
