    Bluetooth Pens Anyone!?
    does any one know of a bluetooth pen i could use with my MacBook Pro..?

    i have had a look at a sony ericsson one and a nokia one but apperently the sony ericsson one only works with their phones; and the nokia one, i havent found anything saying it does or doesnt work with macs (it does work with PC's but i cant find anything saying it would work for me)

    i have also looked at wacom bluebooth graphire tablet and pen how ever it then means i have to lug around a tablet as well as the laptop!... would be good if there was a bluetooth pen that you could write notes with on a piece of paper and as you do sothe pen is sending those notes to your lmac for browsing through later!!

    post or email me (williamford@gmail.com)
    if you have any answers!

    thanks

    i have had a look at the logitech pen and it doesnt say it will work with macs!!

    in the required specs page for the pen it only details the specs for windows, so from that i assume it doesnt work with macs

    I bet if someone tried one, it'll just work out of the box with OS X...

    It's a bit pricey just to try out though...

    According to a message on one of apple's developers mailing lists, the Logitech IO will NOT work with OS X.

    But it kind of puts me off that you need special paper for these things to work though...

    you dont have to have special paper but the quality and accuracy for them to work is greatly improved.. i supose it starts to get slightly less practical though, i mean - if you cant write in your planner and be able to record data because it doesnt have special paper.. would be very annoying
