Changes to the Livescribe smartpen Range

I’ve been advised by Livescribe that effective immediately the product range of smartpens will be reduced to two core SKU’s – the 2GB Echo smartpen, and the Livescribe 3 Black Edition. Both these smartpens are priced at AUD 249. The premium SKU’s that existed in the Echo and LS3 range – namely the 8GB Echo, LS3 Pro, and LS3 Moleskine are officially retired with little or no stock available (Officeworks may have some units on hand but possibly only via online). No further changes are expected to the product range for the foreseeable future. Both the 2GB Echo and LS3

Livescribe 3 vs Neo smartpen N2

I’m asked often about the differences between the Livescribe 3 smartpen and NeoLABS N2 smartpen so this blog post is a summary of what I think of both models. This is my personal opinion… Note that I’m not including the Echo smartpen in this comparison as I consider it to be unique with no natural competitor. 1. Size of pen A lot has been made of the slimmer size of the N2 vs Livescribe 3 – certainly I find the N2 easy to hold and like the anodised alloy finish (ala the first Pulse smartpen) but having used both for

How To Choose The Right Smartpen

If you’re not sure about which model Livescribe smartpen is right for you, this blog post will help. Remember: Livescribe DOES NOT release models that necessarily replace earlier models or are better than existing models unless specifically noted at launch. The easiest way to determine which Livescribe model is right for you is to think about how you want to use the smartpen. These are the typical questions I will ask you if you need advice on which model best suits your needs: If you write a lot and need to convert hand written notes into an editable format –

How to access the audio file from a Livescribe 3 smartpen recording

As many of you know, the Livescribe 3 smartpen uses your companion tablet or smartphone to record audio (unlike the Echo smartpen where the recording is on-board the pen). Because of this, how the audio file is managed differs from the Echo range, which means if you want to export and/or share the native audio file you need to follow a number of explicit steps to do so. Please note: By default, you can replay the audio using the pencast tab in Livescribe+. IF you want to export the audio file only, you need to follow these steps (and please

Do New Livescribe Models Mean Better Technology?

A key question I’m asked by customers all the time is – “I want the latest and greatest version of the Livescribe pen…” In the general consumer electronics space (CE) this is often the right question to ask – vendors typically release new models that are either incrementally better or step change better.We see this regularly with phones and tablets. With Livescribe though, that is not the case – so let me explain what I mean… What Smartpens Are Current Models? The Livescribe smartpen range consists of two core models: Echo smartpen – comprising 2GB and 8GB Pro Edition options

Livescribe 3 Black Edition smartpen Launched

Today for Australia and New Zealand we are launching the Livescribe 3 Black Edition smartpen.

Android App for Livescribe 3 – What It All Means

Livescribe+ and the Livescribe 3 smartpen are compatible
