Review: Livescribe Echo smartpen

8 December 2010
  • Summary: The pen itself is relatively bulky, but not to the point where it is uncomfortable to use. In fact, holding the Echo is actually quite nice. And remember, this bulk isn't for nothing - inside the pen is a battery, a digital camera, display and batteries. How they fit all that inside this small case is nothing short of amazing. On top of the pen is a MicroUSB jack and a headphone plug. On the from is a microphone, OLED display and power button.

Livescribe Echo 8GB smartpen review

31 August 2010
  • Conclusion: If you already own a Livescribe Pulse, the Echo arguably doesn't offer enough to warrant an upgrade. And there are plenty of reasons to avoid smartpens altogether; they require recharging on a regular basis, they're bulky in comparison to normal pens, and they're far more expensive, too. Yet in a period of two years, Livescribe has sold over 400,000 units and there's a good reason why; if you're a religious note-taker, the Echo is the ultimate productivity tool.

Livescribe Echo Smartpen

  • Excerpt: You’re at a uni lecture or a business meeting. Someone is speaking and you’re scribbling like mad. All the while, you hope the notes you’re scratching out bear a reasonable resemblance to what’s being said so you can study them later. Livescribe’s Echo Smartpen promises to remove the mystery (and the stress) from note-taking by capturing audio and linking it to your written notes. How does it make this magic?

Livescribe Echo Smartpen incelemesi

28 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Hepimiz biliyoruz ki bir toplantı esnasında çok iyi not tutsanız da her zaman kaçırdığınız şeyler ya da toplantı bittikten sonra aklınızda kalan soru işaretleri olur. Bir ses kayıt cihazı ise doğrusal olarak kayıt yaptığı için konuşmanın doğru anını yakalayabilme konusunda yetersiz kalır. Öncelikle Echo Smartpen’in çalışma sistemine biraz değinelim.
  • Pros: Geniş kullanım alanı, el yazısı tanıma
  • Cons: Tutuşu ince parmaklılar için biraz yorucu

Livescribe Echo Smartpen

14 June 2011
  • Summary: Der Stift funktioniert mit dem mitgelieferten und gedruckten Papier einwandfrei. Auch mehrere Stunden schreiben sind kein Problem, weder für den Akku noch für die Hand. Die Navigation im Menü klappt auch dank der Sprachführung super und macht immer wieder Freude. Drückt man während des Schreibens die Schaltfläche "record", wird der Ton mit aufgenommen.
