Hitachi Maxell to release consumer Anoto-enabled digital pen

Hitachi Maxell has announced that it will begin marketing the Digital Pen Set (Starter Kit for PC), its first consumer digital pen product, on July 1.

The Anoto-compatible product combines the ease of use of pen and paper with the capabilities of digital devices, such as a PC. When writing with the digital pen on a sheet of paper with an Anoto pattern printed, the handwritten information (both text and graphics data) is recorded and stored in the pen. The digital information is then sent to a PC to be used with business applications, such as Word and PowerPoint.

The USB1.2/2.0-enabled digital pen measures 152x23x20mm and weighs 38g. It comes with 1MB of memory, large enough to store 40 A4 pages of documents, and operates on a polymer lithium ion battery, which delivers a continuous recording time of two hours on a single recharge.

The product will be available at Maxell's online shopping website m@Mart (www.maxell-mart.com), and is open-priced.
