Well....get ready for the next generation of SmartPen - the Echo! The Echo has all the features of the Pulse Pen (mainly the ability to record audio information that is synced to written notes on the specialized notebooks) and expands on those features with some exciting new enhancements.
First, the Echo comes in a a 4GB and 8GB model. The 4 GB model will sell for $169.95 and the 8GB model will sell for $199.95. The 2GB Pulse Pen will still be available and the price will drop to $129.95
Some of the new features of the Echo pen include:
- Elimination of the specialized docking cradle. The Echo comes with a mini USB port to connect directly into a computer for transfer of files.
- Standard size headphone jack (3.5mm)
- New & improved shape. Less round than the Pulse Pen (not as likely to roll away!) and more contoured to fit hand.
- Paper Tablet - This feature enables the pen to be used as a digitizer when connected to a computer.
- Ability to share recorded notes with others as a PDF document.
- The ability to share pencasts with others via iPhone and iPad.
