"The way it works is you clip it onto a pad of paper or single sheet of paper up to letter size…and you start writing. So what ever you put down on your notepad or your pad of paper is captured electronically. So if you're in a meeting and you want to take meeting notes…it captures electronically. And it's verified by the LCD screen here on the unit. And as you write, it scrolls down automatically." A special pen…that uses standard ink refills…transmits to the small clip with an LCD screen at the top of the page. The clip can store about 50 pages worth of writing….which can then be transferred as graphic images to a PC through a USB connection. While the device works well…some folks ask…if you're writing on paper anyway…why do need to save it on a computer as an image?
"If you wanted to share your notes with a group of people, you wanted to save them electronically, you have that advantage as well." A better, but more expensive solution, is the Tablet PC. The Mobile NoteTaker sells for about 150 dollars. Bloomberg Boot Camp, I'm Fred Fishkin.
