The original technology provider is Anoto (whose technology has been licensed by different companies for similar products, including Nokia and Logitech).

Hi,

it seems that the Nokia SU-1B had to be stopped selling due to RoHs regulation. Thats an environmental issue from the EU. I realized that several products e.g. carkits stopped or got a re-fresh of the product due to this regulation.

I read that the SU-1B was a nightmare to connect to windows (you had to disable virus software & internet connection). Is that true? Does the new pen solve the problem?

I had no probelms with the SU-1B; virus scanners, firewall apps, Internet connections, PC Suite, all worked fine with the pen connected.

I read it in a review on ZDNet. I've got MacAfee on this PC, Norton on others and something obscure and techie at work. The disabling your net connection is odd and obviously on an office network is quite tricky too.

So with the new pen there's a handwriting recognition software for the phone? The N80 is listed as compatible with the new SU-27W pen, so is there an S60 v3 version of this software?

No there is no handwriting recognition that sits on any phone, the anoto architecture does not work in that way.

Digital pen providers have their own recognition software and logitech have their own for a local/consumer product. Logitech use a stripped down version of 'Vision Objects'.

Actually the pen comes with the Sysnet PenMail software for S60 which contains handwriting recognition. (Vision Object as well).

Re: Are Nokia dropping the SU-1B Digital Pen?

does anybody knows if this is possibel using the SU-27W or in conjucntion with another phone software... here is what i want to happen:

- write sms/mms using the pen, the message sent to the phone (this i know can be done) and then the phone automatically sends the sms/mms to the recipient listed on the message...

anybody?

No, you would have to manually enter the recipients contact info on the phone.

With the Clairefontaine/Metalinks PaperPC system, which was web based, coding on the paper determined the destination of the e-mail. However, this system has gone belly up (and Clairefontaine are refunding users). The Sysnet PenMAIL system, of which I have yet to have first hand experience, says that it uses the phone's directory as the source of the mail destination.

i just saw Sysnet PenMAIL site, it is interesting, but requires another subscription aside from GPRS... and it is only supporting SU-1B... i wonder about upgrades to S60 3rd ed??? promising though...

Re: Are Nokia dropping the SU-1B Digital Pen?

Just installed the OxfordM3 system, and finally got around to installing my main e-mail box on the phone (thanks to a very helpful guide in this forum).

The only missing link in my system is the digital to phone link. Oxford M3 say they are not planning anything to support the Sysnet system, but I will investigate it further to see what I have to do to get it running.

I don't really like the idea of carrying around two pads (one for the phone and one for the PC system) which it sounds as if I might have to do) but the functionality of having handwriting recognition on the phone and the ability to generate text documents and e-mails on the fly from a handwritten source is very attractive to me.

Sorry, I meant to say the missing link was handwriting to text on the phone. PenMail has handwriting recognition software sitting on the phone in the same way that the OxfordM3 Denos system has it sitting on the PC.
