Wizzy Active Lifestyle Telephone

An experimental telecommunication device developed by Apple and BellSouth around the same time as the Original MessagePad. It featured a touch screen display and pen similar to a Newton device, but with a HyperCard-based user interface running on top of the Macintosh System 6.0.8 operating system.

The WALT has been referred to as “… a Mac in Newton’s clothing.”
