PKG file extension - Apple Newton e-book

What is pkg file? How to open pkg files?

File type specification:

E-book file type icon E-book file type

pkg file icon: pkg filetype icon

The pkg file extension is related to Apple Newton platform. This format was used for e-books usable on Newton MessagePAD.

The Newton platform was an early personal digital assistant hardware/software platform developed by Apple Computer.  Most Newton devices were developed and marketed by Apple (this includes the whole MessagePad line and the eMate 300), but other companies, notably Sharp, Motorola, and Digital Ocean, also released devices that ran the Newton OS. None was as successful as Apple's devices.

Generally speaking, ebooks can be usually converted to other similar formats, or their text extracted and saved in a separate document.
