IBM Corp. has shipped its ThinkPad TransNote, a PC hybrid device that uses an ink-filled pen and a notebook. ThinkPad TransNote has a starting price of US$2,999 and features an Intel Pentium III 600MHz processor, a 10.4-inch TFT (thin-film transistor) screen, and a 10GB hard drive. What makes the TransNote unique is the other half of the system, which is connected to a digital notepad IBM dubbed the ThinkScribe. ThinkScribe allows a user to write using an ink-filled digital pen. Any type of paper sits atop an electronic grid array that captures the pen movements and uses an RF (radio frequency) transmitter to send the saved file to the notebook. The TransScribe captures the pen strokes as a graphics file and stores handwritten notes.
