IOGEAR Mobile Digital Scribe

It looks like IOGEAR is jumping on the digital pen bandwagon with their own offering, the Mobile Digital Scribe. So far there have been two camps developing when it comes to digital pen technology. One side uses special paper covered in a nearly invisible dot pattern and a camera-equipped pen to track its motion, while the other side uses a separate device and some form or wireless technology to do the same. The Mobile Digital Scribe falls into that second camp, and I have to say it’s probably the side I’m leaning towards. I like the fact that special paper or writing surfaces aren’t needed, and the separate device used to track the motion and store the data allows the pen itself to be normal sized.

Like with the other digital pens coming to the market, the Mobile Digital Scribe includes the necessary software to convert your handwritten notes into text which can be edited in your word processor or easily emailed. You can also choose to convert sketches or drawings directly into JPEG images, or even use the Digital Scribe as a virtual tablet while the receiver is connected to your PC.

While it doesn’t appear to be as fancy or feature-rich as other digital pens, the Mobile Digital Scribe does have the advantage of actually being available right now from IOGEAR for $129.95.

    Are we sure it’s actually available to buy right now? According to the website it’s not available near my zip code or online, and I also tried Manhattan in case just my part of America is behind the times with IOGEAR. Any one else seen / been able to buy one?

    Hm, while I didn’t go all the way through with the purchase, clicking on the ‘Buy Now’ link on the left side of the page seemed to work. But I can’t say for sure if the order would actually be shipped immediately, or put on the backburner until stock is available.

    It is available and i just bought it on sale from Dell for 67$ tax in.
