Nokia's new SU-1B Digital Pen records as it writes on a piece of digital paper. Text can be easily transferred via a USB connection to a compatible PC. Writings and colorful drawn images can also be sent to a compatible MMS handset using GIF format or sent to any email address as an MMS message.
The pen uses special digital notepads that can sense what the pen writes. The pen remembers each page of each pad separately so you can return to your writing later without losing any information. The notepads contain regular paper with a specially printed digital pattern. The pages have coded boxes containing pen commands. Just tick the send box and your page will instantly be sent to your compatible phone or PC.
The Nokia Digital Pen comes equipped with a connectivity stand, a travel charger, USB cable, MMS pad, notepad, ink refills, a PC application on CD, and user's guide.
The SU-1B is capable of up to two hours of writing time and can store up to 100 pages of text. It supports both character recognition and handwriting recognition. However, the software for these applications needs to be purchased separately. The Digital Pen is compatible with the Nokia 3650, 6650 and 7650 mobile phones and other phones supporting Bluetooth spec. 1.1. The range between the Nokia Digital Pen and the phone it is paired with can be up to ten meters.
The Nokia Digital pen SU-1B is expected to be available in the third quarter.
