The Seiko Instruments SmartPad2 enables you to instantly capture everything you write or draw using the SmartPad pen on ordinary paper and send it to your Palm OS-based handheld. You can handwrite notes and store them in your Date Book or draw a map with directions and attach it to a contact in your Address Book. It is compatible with Palm III series or later, Sony Clié, Handspring Visor, and HandEra handhelds.
The SmartPad2's adjustable infrared transceiver sends your notes and drawings directly to your handheld via the infrared port. Store your notes as attachments to any of the four Palm OS applications or transfer them via HotSync to your PC. From your PC you can print your notes, and file, fax, or e-mail them. You can also e-mail notes and drawings directly from your handheld with optional e-mail software and a modem or phone.
SmartPad2 consists of an electronic notepad integrated into an elegant portfolio that also stores and protects your Palm OS-based organizer. The paper notepad is a standard paper pad; refills are available at any stationery store. A special pen is provided that automatically transmits whatever you write through SmartPad into your Palm OS-based organizer. For convenience, the opposite end of the pen contains a stylus point for use with the Palm OS-based organizer.

Here is how I use it - during meetings I take notes, do sketches (user interfaces, high-level system design diagrams, etc.), and list follow-up items. This material is automatically beamed to my Palm Vx as pictures of the sketches and/or notes. I upload these to my PC and email them as attachments. This gets information out quickly, which can be followed up later with more refined notes transcribed into a word processor (by hand) or better drawings (I use Visio).
It does one thing only - captures pictures of what you write on plain paper - and it does that exceptionally well.
I liked the easy set-up, the fact that it comes with a QWERTY tap keyboard (it's under the pad), and performs as advertised. If your needs are similar to mine stated above and you have either a Palm or Pocket PC PDA you will probably love this notepad. However, it does not perform optical character recognition, so it that is what you're seeking you need to keep looking.
