Logitech releases new version of Digital Pen
Logitech has introduced the Logitech io2 Digital Writing System, the second generation of the company's pen-based digital writing system. The Digital Writing System allows users to quickly transform handwritten notes and ideas into digital attachments, editable text and archived files. The new pen will also be available as part of custom writing solutions for vertical market applications in areas such as healthcare, legal and sales.

The Logitech io2 Digital Writing System features a refined, slimmer digital pen design along with more paper options and enhanced handwriting recognition that is now part of the core product.

Based on the functionality developed by Swedish-based company Anoto, the Logitech io2 Digital Writing System can be used to take notes at a meeting or draw pictures and have those notes or pictures instantly digitized and archived by docking the Logitech io2 Digital Pen. MyScript Notes for the Logitech io Pen can convert handwritten notes into text, while also fine-tuning shapes, tables and charts. To increase handwriting recognition accuracy, MyScript Notes includes a training module to familiarize the software with the user's own handwriting. In the Logitech io2 software, archived documents are searchable by any handwritten word. Information can then easily be imported into calendar applications such as Microsoft Outlook or Lotus Notes(R). Or, with one click, people can email digital files to a colleague.

The new Logitech io2 Digital Pen is brushed metallic in color with a polished black stripe, and can be customized with included color ID tags. The new Logitech io2 travel cradle has a compact, folding design and is USB-powered.

The digital paper used with Logitech's Digital Writing System is now available in a variety of forms. The retail version of the Logitech io2 Digital Writing System comes with an 8.5-inch-by-11-inch notebook, an 8.5-inch-by-11-inch notepad and a smaller travel notepad, with additional offerings available online. The digital paper enables the capture of handwritten notes through a patented pattern of tiny dots pre-printed on each sheet to form a light screen effect. This pattern is read by an optical sensor embedded in the Logitech io Digital Pen, which then stores the information in non-volatile memory until the pen is docked in its USB cradle.

Logitech has also introduced ioDirect, a new service that gives customers instant access to all the paper and accessories available for the Logitech io2 Digital Pen. Logitech's ioDirect will update registered users on the latest news, accessories and software, as well as enable them to set up a standing order of their frequently used paper.
