Livescribe has announced a partnership with Moleskine, and unveiled a series of notebooks that work with the smartpens. As you write the pen captures your notes and transcribes them to digital format that can be used on your computer or mobile device. The Livescribe 3 smartpen connects to iOS devices via Bluetooth and users can access their drawings and notes through Livescribe+, which is already available on the App Store.
The Livescribe notebooks have an expandable inner pocket containing two bookmarks printed with smartpen buttons and controls, and all of the traditional Moleskine bonuses like great paper, rounded corners, a ribbon bookmark.
“There’s something magical about writing on paper with a pen, it opens up your imagination and allows you to expand your thinking beyond the constraints of a keyboard,” said Gilles Bouchard, CEO of Livescribe. “With these new Moleskine notebooks and a Livescribe smartpen, you can tap into that inspiration, and store everything on your digital devices, too.”
