Moleskine and Livescribe 3, an exciting combination releasing this year

Livescribe and Moleskine have an exciting new product on the way, the Livescribe 3 smartpen Moleskine Edition. The two companies announced today that preorders can now be taken for the high-anticipated release later this year.

The Moleskine Edition combines the art of handwriting with the convenience of technology to seamlessly digitize notes, allowing both iOS and Android smartphone and tablet users to make their notes more actionable than ever.

As users write and doodle on their classic ivory-colored Moleskine pages using the smartpen, their handwriting appears on their phone or tablet in the Livescribe+ mobile app where they can sync with recorded audio in the form of a pencast. With Livescribe, notes become infinitely more useful while allowing writers to continue using their favorite notebooks and writing accessories from Moleskine.

“We were thrilled to launch Livescribe notebooks by Moleskine last year. Pairing Livescribe’s innovative technology with Moleskine’s strong heritage in enabling the written word to flourish has always made an awful lot of sense,” said Gilles Bouchard, CEO, Livescribe. “With the Livescribe 3 Moleskine Edition, we are continuing that partnership, and further marrying the timeless process of writing on paper with the benefits of connected devices to the full variety of consumers – business people, writers, students – everyone who understands that there is something uniquely compelling about writing and drawing on paper.”

“Handwriting is not a dying art – far from it. In fact we have seen it to be entering a renaissance in recent years,” said Maria Sebregondi, co-founder and VP of Brand Equity and Communications at Moleskine. “In expanding our partnership with Livescribe to introduce the Moleskine Edition of Livescribe 3 to creative professionals and knowledge workers everywhere, we are together providing a way to take notes, both physically and digitally, with style and grace.”

This bundle includes a Moleskine-branded Livescribe 3 smartpen, a Livescribe Notebook by Moleskine, a Moleskine tool belt, a one-year subscription to Evernote Premium, and free companion app downloads of Livescribe+, which is available for iOS and Android. The Livescribe 3 smartpen Moleskine Edition is currently available to preorder for $229.95 at livescribe.com, and will begin shipping later this month.
