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:

  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. New Colours – another nice addition to the product range.

As we learn more about these new products we’ll share it here first.
