Samsung releases a pen-enabled eReader in Korea

Samsung has released a pen-enabled e-Reader in Korea. It's not a Kindle. It's not an iPad.  After seeing this picture, memories of the Apple Newton came flooding back. I really miss using the Newton. I loved the fact that I would write (or ink) my notes on the screen. I loved the fact that it had robust battery life (AA batteries).

Since the Apple iPad uses a capacitive touch screen, it's not designed for traditional pen-enabled inking and handwriting recognition.

Will handwriting recognition be a standard feature found in future e-readers?


  1. Not a nice product....I heard reviews of it, I am not impressed with this pen. I think LG's pen is more effective than samsung. Anyway different people have different issue with on matter. thanks for sharing.

  2. I don't know but I predict the Kindle will be like the old Nintendo system. A single app could be devastating to the kindle. Spend $150 on the Kindle or an extra $500 on an IPad.
