LiveScribe's pen computer delayed to '08

The digital pen from start-up LiveScribe, which can record both sound and handwritten notes, was supposed to make its debut in the fourth quarter, according to an announcement in May. However, the company now plans a formal launch for January, while the product won't be broadly available to consumers until later in the quarter, possibly late March. "They are just doing a lot of fine-tuning of the software and the applications and the development tools, and didn't want to come out in the market until things were perfect," said a LiveScribe representative. LiveScribe, which includes former executives from LeapFrog and Palm, hasn't given too many specifics on the pen, but has said it will have a built-in display, be capable of syncing an audio recording of a meeting with handwritten notes, and will sell for less than $200.

I was going to rag on this because the fly pen has been on the market for a while but after watching what it can actually do I am quite amazed. That would have been infinitely useful in school. Oh well, I still got my BS without it.
