Nokia releasing a new digital pen

Not only is it a digital pen that records what you write, but it has Bluetooth, for what purpose I don’t know, unless it works with N-Series phones for sending handwritten notes, it probably doesn’t, but that would be cool. It has 1.3MB of on board storage, and then the Bluetooth is likely so its possible to wirelessly offload that storage or maybe so you can use it like a Wacom tablet.

That 1.3MB should net you about 100 pages, in A5 size, of normal text. But the battery only lasts for 3 hours, so if you can write 100 full length pages of text in 3 hours, give yourself a pat on the back and a gold star if you have one lying around, because I can type a lot faster than I can write, and there is no way I could hit 100 pages in three hours.

Anyways, they go on sale in 2 days or on the 20th for those with a calendar, and they will cost you $240 each, so a full set of them would probably be 1. You’ll also have to stock up on the special paper that the pen requires, sure, you can write in ink on anything, but the stuff won’t be recorded unless it’s on this special paper.
