After posting my review of the FLY Fusion Pentop Computer I got quite a few tips about the Livescribe Smartpen as a more ‘adult-oriented’ alternative. (And by ‘adult’ I mean ‘grown-up.’) Well the other day the company sent me a message about their new blog that also happened to include the first photos of the Smartpen hardware.
Not surprisingly it’s still larger than your regular ballpoint pen, but given what it promises to be capable of, and the fact that it has a built-in OLED display, the size is understandable.
And for those of you who just can’t wait, the Livescribe Smartpen is actually available for pre-order on the Livescribe website. While the final price hasn’t been nailed down as of yet (it will apparently retail for under $200) if you pre-order before December 31, you’ll enjoy free shipping and handling when it’s finally available.
