New release has more storage, better software than original release

Smartpen manufacturer Livescribe announced yesterday that it is now rolling out a new Echo Smartpen 8GB Pro Edition.

New app serves as Evernote alternative

Livescribe recently introduced its third-generation smartpen and its first iOS app, Livescribe+, which aims to serve as an alternative to Evernote. We met the company this week in New York City, where we put the digital pen to task against our hastily scribbled notes. The concept is certainly promising, but does the new software and hardware really serve as an effective note-taking system for iPhones and iPads?

Livescribe has added to its range of smartpens, with the latest having tighter integration with mobile devices.
