APPLE'S READIES ITS FIRST NEWTON PRODUCT -- A COMMUNICATIONS ASSISTANT -- FOR SHIPPING

 CUPERTINO, Calif., July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- A revolution in communication is at hand. Apple Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: AAPL) today announced that its first product based on Newton technology -- a handheld communication assistant -- has passed its final milestone before volume manufacture. The product's "Golden Master" -- or final software image -- has been released to Sharp Corporation for the beginning of the product's manufacturing.
 The product remains on schedule for availability in the United States this summer, and in key international markets later in the year. The company will formally unveil the product in a special event on August 2, in Boston, Mass.
 "We're counting the days," said Gaston Bastiaens, vice president and general manager of Apple's Personal Interactive Electronics (PIE) Division. "In a short time, a new era in communications will begin. And the way people share information and collaborate will change forever."
 The handheld communications assistant is the first of a family of products Apple plans to introduce based on Newton technology and incorporating Newton Intelligence in the coming years.
