Product Description



Handwritten notes and illustrations are captured using an ink filled digital pen & rechargeable base unit attached to normal paper. Your notes can then be uploaded via USB cable to PC.

Once notes are saved to your PC, they can be converted into typed text (30 languages are supported including English & most European, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Hindi, Russian etc) which can then be imported into word processors, such as Microsoft® Word and Open Office.

While connected to your PC, the pen can be used as a mouse (input device) across all applications, useful when using applications such as Adobe Illustrator, Coral Draw or Inkscape.

The pen can also be used with the 'digital inking' and 'tablet PC' features in Windows® and the 'annotating' features found in Miscroft® Office applications.

I find the e-pen revolutionaryReview by Mike
Overall Opinion
The e-pens mobile notes has been a life changer. I used to spend a great deal of time retyping meeting notes. Now I use this device and everything I write is stored as handwriting and converted to text (which makes it searchable for future reference). Would recommend the e-pen. (Posted on 16/06/2013)

The e-pen is a must have when preparing additional lecturer material such as video and podcasts. I also used the e-pen in 1-1 online tuition. It is fast and easy to set up so no hassles across the University network. (Posted on 07/06/2013)

Review of the mobile digipad pro by Trusted ReviewsReview by Trusted Reviews
Overall Opinion
No matter how far we move into the digital age, we just can't seem to get rid of the good old pen. From graphics tablets to stylus interfaces to handwriting recognition, the tool that's mightier than the sword sticks with us tenaciously. Today we're taking a look at a peripheral that combines the best of both worlds: e-Pens' Mobile Notes, a digital pen with ink that can write on normal paper too...
