If you’re an existing Livescribe Pulse Smartpen user, you would have received an email from Livescribe today about the new products coming through the system.
Great news from the team and a reflection of how they listen and react to market feedback!
Not surprisingly we’ve already fielded dozens of calls, emails, and Tweets about when the 4GB will be available here – stay tuned as I don’t have details yet.
Here are the key points about the news this week:
- Livescribe 4GB – up to 400 hours of audio capture – but more importantly additional capacity to load applications onto the pen. I think this is a good move by Livescribe. Having spoken to thousands of customers around the APAC region the message I’m hearing is that users want additional functionality and integration
- The new Pro Pack – I liked the old Livescribe Pro Pack – I like the new Livescribe 4GB Pro Pack even more – our problem is we just can’t get it down here – YET.
Over the past 18 months we’ve had the opportunity to build a very detailed profile of what people NEED based on how they plan to use the Livescribe Pulse Smartpen. Shortly, we’ll be announcing a series of product bundles aimed at specific user groups – business users, teachers, students, and researchers.
- The new Charging Cradle – Now this is a very cool – very Apple style – addition to the Livescribe accessory range. I had the opportunity to see the prototype a while ago and was amazed at how good this cradle looks. It’s only available as part of the pro-pack and in the US at the moment but we’re making enquiries as to whether we can get them into Australia and New Zealand.
- New Colours – another nice addition to the product range.
As we learn more about these new products we’ll share it here first.
