Then someone took notice of a project that was being worked on for a portable device, and it got green lighted to go to market. It took a loooooooooong time, several years of development, changing product types, etc. In the time it took to get the product on the shelves, 3-4 different generations of today's iPad would come and go.
It's a fascinating story of the people and the times at Apple, and how they got a truly revolutionary product to market. The Newton may not have been a success, but it created a multi-billion dollar market.
