Record and Play Back

Smartpens record everything you write and hear so you'€™ll never miss a word. Replay your meetings or lectures simply by tapping on your handwritten notes. The use of special Livescribe dot-paper is obligatory.

8GB of Memory: PLENTY of room for recording notes

Easily transfer recorded notes and audio to your Mac or PC via mico-USB cable. When digitizing your notes and audio you'll need storage space; with 8GB of memory, your smartpen has it. The 8GB smartpen can hold over 800 hours of audio (actual recording time varies as a function of audio quality settings) or over 100,000 pages of notes.

Save, Search and Organize

Echo Desktop saves your notes and recordings to your computer for fast, easy access to what’s important. Search for words within your notes and find what you need fast.

What You Get

  • Echo smartpen with 8GB of memory (actual user available memory will be somewhat less)
  • Echo Desktop software for Mac or Windows (download Echo Desktop for free)
  • Micro USB cable for charging and data transfer
  • Echo Basics Guide (Download from http://www.livescribe.com/en-ca/support/manuals.html)
  • Please note: paper, ink, software and other accessories are SOLD SEPARATELY or as part of a bundle.

Please note that the Echo smartpen, like all Livescribe smartpens, only works with Livescribe dot paper

Many other of our products include extra ink, paper and accessories but that is NOT the case with the 8gb Echo smartpen. The 8gb smartpen is shipped WITHOUT packaging. In this way, we keep the costs down for the base product. Note that we do sell "bundles" that include all these types of items, and many customers prefer the bundles.
