An anonymous reader writes: CNET UK has written a head-to-head piece entitled Apple Newton vs Apple iPhone. Despite the Newton being released some 10 years ago, and despite the iPhone being a phone, not a tablet, the site's editors believe the Newton is the more innovative of the two Apple products. The two devices were tied over four rounds, but in the "Special Powers" element, where the iPhone was praised for its iPod capability, the Newton countered with its ability to play MP3s, connect to iTunes and "its ability to work as a phone" because "Blam! Not even the iPhone can do that."
