Regular readers of this blog know that I am a Tablet PC evangelist. I simply cannot emphasize enough the productivity boost that I get when using a tablet PC. I find that I cannot live without my MS OneNote on a Tablet PC. Especially in meetings, I find that it is a productivity boost to be able to write something knowing that I could almost instantaneously email my handwritten notes for sharing with members of my team or to my Virtual Secretary to convert to text.
In fact, when I became a hybrid (Any OS – Mac OS X, Linux, XP/Vista) PC user last year, I still find myself looking for alternatives to digital inking. One of those alternatives is the pigpog PDA which I carry with me every time that I do not have with me a Tablet PC.
As much as I love OneNote on a Tablet PC, there are times when you would like to just be able to take notes and draw pictures in a notebook and have those notes show up in my OneNote notebook.
For the past six months that I have been using the Capturx PenX, I can say that I have finally found my solution. With this setup together with the docking cradle that comes with the PenX, I could sync all handwritten notes to any of my computers and find them synchronized with my OneNote notebooks as digital ink.
With the PenX, I can now travel with just about any laptop and still have the power and convenience of digital ink.
The Capturx Penx kit (PenX, software, 1 journal and cradle) will set you back $349.00. This does not include the MS OneNote software which I have installed in all of my computers. Extra journals, refills and other accessories are also available from the AdapX website.
