Nokia SU-1B digital pen

Nokia SU-1B digital pen

Quick Take: Used for much more than just jotting down deep thoughts, the Nokia SU-1B digital pen also transfers your notes and drawings to a Bluetooth-enabled PC, handheld, or cell phone. Colored in gray with silver touches and sleek lines, the SU-1B looks larger than most pens, but it's comfortable to hold while writing. Removing and replacing the cap turns the pen on and off, and a short vibrating effect lets you know it's powered up. We had some trouble pairing the device to our Motorola A630 and our Nokia 6820 in an initial test run; the pen could locate the handsets but not vice versa, and the connections cut out intermittently. But when the SU-1B is properly paired, it's a cinch to write with, and transferring data to the phone took a few seconds. A word of caution, though: You must use the provided digital paper notebooks, as they contain a series of commands that enable the SU-1B to work properly. You get a choice of two sizes; a replacement pack of five is $39.99 for the large size and $38.99 for the small. Memory size is 1MB--equivalent to about 100 pages of text--and Nokia promises 2 hours of battery life for writing time and up to 10 hours of standby time. Be warned; the price is high ($249), so even the truest gadget geeks should give it a whirl before buying.
