Livescribe smartpen Test Drive Launched

Starting today I’m pleased to announce that we have launched a Livescribe smartpen test drive/try before you buy service for our (potential) customers in Australia and New Zealand.

The purpose of the test drive is to give you the opportunity to try the pen, experience the features, size, and benefits that come from this product before you commit to a purchase.

How the Test Drive Works

The test drive service is really simple – and it’s obligation free.

In summary:

  • You can trial either the Livescribe 2GB Echo smartpen, or the Livescribe 3 smartpen for a period of 30 days
  • We will send you either option along with a notebook, USB cable, and instructions on getting starter with your trial pen
  • At the end of the 30-days you MUST return the pen to us (if you don’t you’ll incur an additional fee of $100)
  • If you do then decide to purchase a smartpen, we’ll also give you a discount code to save 7.5% off paper and accessories.

What The Test Drive Cost?

The only cost to you is for shipping both to you, and back to us at the end of the trial (we’ll include a return satchel). Yes, I did give consideration to this being a free trial but to be honest, I believe you’ll take it more seriously when you have some skin in the game as well.

This is obligation free

If you take up this offer you are under no obligation to purchase a smartpen from us. All I ask is that you take the trial period seriously, use the pen, ask questions, give us your feedback (good, bad, or otherwise) and return the pen to us.

  1. This is quite misleading, Mark. “Launching” would imply “delivering” but that does not appear to be the case – if you aren’t going to supply my order, please notify me and refund the $25 deposit that was deducted from my account on 9 August 2016 so that I can get something else.

      Hi Jane
      You should have received an update from me earlier in the week? If not, then that’s my fault – sorry. I’m clearing out the backlog of test drives tomorrow. We had everything ready then had to make a couple of changes to the process which delayed getting pens out to the early responders such as yourself. You’ll get tracking details tomorrow.


  2. That would be great, Mark. I’ll be in the look out for the tracking notification!

    Is there any way to integrate this with planners and outlook?
