Siemens Online Terminal

A Newton device purported to have been in development by Siemens. The prototype device was to be an “all-in-one communication terminal” employing a user interface based on Newton OS and combining several communication services including wireless telephony, fax, voice messaging, web access, and email.

A third party device that utilizes a licensed version of the Newton OS is often referred to as a clone. Siemens also developed two versions of the NotePhone, a Newton OS device incorporating a telephone.
