For this week’s giveaway, we’ve teamed up with Neo Smartpen to give away a Neo Smartpen N2 and a matching N Notebook, which work together to let you write on traditional paper while also transferring your notes to your iPhone or iPad to use in apps like Evernote.
The Neo Smartpen N2 and its accompanying Neo Notes app is able to sync what is written in the N Notebook to an iOS device, transcribing any written text into digital text. Made of aluminum and stainless steel, the N2 is similar in size to a traditional ballpoint pen and weighs just 22 grams, so it’s easy to transport anywhere you go.
It includes a dual-core processor that can capture more than 120 frames per second, transferring information to an iPhone or iPad via Bluetooth. Its built-in battery will work for five hours of constant usage or three days of normal usage.
The N2 Smartpen does need to be used with an N Notebook that has tiny symbols printed on it to transfer written words to an iPhone, but the company also recently introduced software that is able to print paper that can be used with the N2. Special paper is needed because the N2 has a small built-in camera that records the position and pressure of each pen stroke.
The Neo Smartpen N2 is available from Amazon for $169, but one MacRumors reader will be able to win one in today’s giveaway.
