CompAmerica announced the DigiMemo A5000, a light weight, mobile electronic paper-pad that stores 40 pages of handwritten notes in it's internal memory, expandable to many hundreds of pages with an optional CF card installed.
Described as a breakthrough in creativity, the new electronic pad by CompAmerica: DigiMemo A5000 allows pen and ink entry in the electronic digital age. Lightweight unit stores hand-drawn text, memos, notes, doodles, drawings, art and creative writing into it's digital memory, transfers them later to Microsoft Windows applications for editing, emailing, printing, and collaboration.
With only a DigiMemo and pen, users can store hand written text, drawings and notes automatically in digital memory. Later on, the pages can be transferred to a PC and further managed: inserted, edited, printed and/or emailed using Microsoft Windows applications like Word and Power Point.
The product, which is between 10 and 15.4 milimeters thick, was said in different models to price out between $99 and $199. Powered by four common AAA batteries - DigiMemo achieves about 120 hours of continuous use before replacement. When connected to a PC the DigiMemo can transfer it's memory of notes and drawings to individual eBook files on the PC's hard disk drive, for further use in editing or emailing. When connected (by USB) the DigiMemo is powered by the PC, saving the batteries.
It can be operated as a mobile unit in hand or can remain attached to a host PC. The DigiMemo weighs in at 1.21 pounds.
For purposes of facilitating transfer and management on your PC, downloadable software for Microsoft Windows enables further editing, combining, transfer, and storage. Memos transferred from the DigiMemo's memory directly to any Microsoft Windows PC may be added to existing works, transmitted to others by email or collaborative software, or included as figures in edited documents.
For even greater capacity, an optional CF Memory Card may be inserted into an available CF slot, to retain hundreds or even thousands of pages.
The company indicated the DigiMemo has many uses, lawyers can take it to Court, it is noiseless and can store notes in their own hand, doctors and nurses can use it to mark up patient information on forms, where hard copy backup is mandatory, students can use it to take notes in class without bringing a bulky laptop with them, teachers or anyone else can use it in lieu of the typical "clipboard", it can be used as a sign in sheet with ordinary paper, for it can accept up to 12mm of paper and still read in the handwriting. CompAmerica says there are "a million and one uses for the DigiMemo, and we keep discovering new ones every single day."
