Smartpen directly connects to mobile device, loses microphone

Livescribe has added to its range of smartpens, with the latest having tighter integration with mobile devices. The Livescribe 3 has a more refined design compared to the Livescribe Sky, and though it ditches the audio recording of earlier models, it introduces its own dedicated Livescribe+ app for recording, managing, and sharing captured writing, rather than relying on Evernote.

Connecting over Bluetooth to a tablet or smartphone, the smartpen can be turned on and quickly paired with a device by twisting a ring. Capable of lasting for up to 14 hours on a single charge, it uses ballpoint cartridges for the writing itself, an infrared camera and ARM-based processor to capture the writing itself, and a capacitive nib on the back that can be used to navigate the mobile device itself.

The Livescribe 3 is available in two different versions. The main bundle, including the smartpen itself, a 50-sheet Starter Notebook for use with the pen, an ink cartridge, and a charging cable, costs $150. A Pro Edition bundle for $200 offers a leather portfolio with a 100-sheet hardbound journal, a one year subscription to Evernote Premium, the charging cable and an extra ink cartridge.
