Yeah! Livescribe looks great! I really hope this isn't going to be vapour-ware.
Update : reading more about this, it's very much what I want. Way more than a Kindle, or iPhone or some kind of sub-laptop. I'd like to see how good the pattern recognition is, in practice, of course, but I'd be willing write Java(!) to play around with this.
Update 2: But I'm a bit confused ... how exactly is it different from a FLY Pentop? Just marketed at a different age group?
Update 3 : OK, so the difference seems to be the LiveScribe is slimmer, and has some cool applications for recording synchronized sound and writing.
