Question by sahil /

Can you tell me any other substitutes for these Smartpens? The Livescribe pens are really costly with a minimum of 100$. I want pens to record lecture and note down something.

      Thanks Tina for the suggestion. I did search the net and still dont find any suitable alternatives to livescribe. Hence ordered the same :)

    For pen’s like these, you wouldn’t find them any cheaper. Maybe for $50 you could, but they aren’t wireless (Ie – they have a cord coming out of the top of the pen)

    At a $100, the Livescribe pen is a deal. There may be some cheap knock-off available from somewhere but it won’t be as well developed (read easy to use) and you will likely end up buying Livescribe later on because the cheap version didn’t work as you hoped. Cut back on the pitchers of beer for a few weeks and treat yourself to the best solution…

    APEN A2 can be an alternative to Livescribe’s smartpen.It’s really better than Livescribe’s smartpen because it can write on regular digitally which is not possible in the former smartpen.
