In today’s tech-savvy world, people are bombarded with innovative Smartphones, tablets, and laptops, but still a great deal of communication relies on the conventional pen and paper. Starting from the college lectures to job interviews to corporate meetings and presentation, all thrive in the monarchy of pen and paper. The Livescribe Echo Smartpen is here to merge technology with the convenient and conventional pen and paper.
We waste a great deal of time in converting the written notes into a digital form. Written notes are retyped, audios are transcribed, and drawings are scanned for the sake of analog-to-digital conversion. The Livescribe Echo saves you a lot of time by allowing you to record audio and at the same time link the audio with the written notes.
The Livescribe Echo Smartpen features include all the capabilities of the award-winning Pulse Pen along with some additional features. Here are some of the features of this Smartpen.
