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.
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?
