|Anoto powered Pens|
There are today 4 (5 but one is uncertain of it is still in production. These pens can all be used with Anoto paper. Some are standalone pens that work with "most" paper and software. Some pens need special paper from respective company to use all functionality of the pen.
LiveScribe Pulse - This is probably the best pen on the market today. It has recording ability along with writing recognition. So you can record a seminar while taking notes, and replay this later by just tapping the notes that you took at the time of recording. For the recording and playback to work you need the LiveScribe paper. The Pulse pen has 2GB of memory whcich is the biggest memory capacity yet in a pen. Beacuse of its record and playback ability it has some great applications available like language translations, where you write words, and the pen says the word translated when tapped. Check out all the features of the pen and software at their site.
Fly Fusion - Another pen, which I think is the origin of the Pulse pen is the Fly Fusion pen. A pen that was targeted at kids, with loads of special colored papers with games and teaching aplpications, like math and language. What was interesting with this pen was that along with the paper came a memory card with the application needed for the pen, so no docking with the computer was needed to switch programs. The webpage seems stale, and I am unsure of the continued development and sale of this pen.
Maxell DP-201 - A "normal" Anoto powered pen without recording and playback functions. Quite a nice formfactor compared to the Fly, Logitech and Nokia pens.
Logitech IO2 - Logitechs Anoto pen, without record and playback.
Nokia SU1B - Nokia Anoto pen, without record and playback.
