Sky vs. Sky: Livescribe Pulls Pen From UK Stores Amid Trademark Dispute
A November 21st post on Livescribe’s official blog describes how the decision to name the smartpen “Sky” came from the device’s roots in cloud computing. The Livescribe Sky records audio and wirelessly syncs handwritten notes to users’ computer and iOS devices.
When LAPTOP reviewed the Livescribe Sky in early December, we praised it’s ease of use, free cloud storage and ergonomic design, awarding the product our Editor’s Choice distinction. Pulling the device from UK shelves so close to Christmas is sure take a serious bite out of the company’s anticipated sales. U.S. shoppers can still pick up the Sky online or in stores for a suggested retail price of $200.
