E FUN Introduces New APEN-Brand Digital Pens

The APEN A2 Allow Users to Write and Draw Digital Images on Regular Paper With Normal Ink Without the Use of a Computer (December 06, 2010)

WEST COVINA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/10 -- E FUN, a consumer electronics marketer of fun, lifestyle products, is introducing its line of APEN A2 digital pens in the US market. The standard-shape pens come with a transmitter and software program that allow users to write and draw images on regular paper using normal ink. The APEN A2 takes digital pens to a new level with its on board memory equipped to perform without a computer connection. The APEN brand is one of two lines -- the Nextbook brand of Android tablet e-readers being the other -- E FUN has launched this year.

"These revolutionary digital pens are perfect for business and educational applications as well as social or personal uses," stated Jason Liszewski, Managing Director and VP of Sales for E FUN. "They epitomize what E FUN is all about: functionality and fun. They take jotting down notes, drawing and annotation to a whole new level of portability by not requiring a computer. Owners of both Windows and Mac systems can take advantage of these unique digital pens."

A special transmitter and software program allow the pens to digitize handwriting and hand-drawn images with ease. Hand-written materials are converted to digital text, which may be uploaded to a computer as a .jpg file. Then, they can immediately be shared by e-mail, in blogs or social media sites such as Facebook and Flickr.

APEN digital pens, when connected to a computer, also allow users to show their creativity as they can perform real-time computer annotation of digital photos. Likewise, they may be used to mark documents, add electronic signatures to documents and create handwritten e-mails.

The APEN A2 digital pen's key features are:

  • Digitizes and records handwriting while the unit is not connected to a computer
  • Records up to 100 pages in the receiver's memory
  • Photo sketcher for annotating written words or drawings on computer images
  • Share photos on Facebook, Flickr and other social media sites
  • Works on regular paper

The APEN A2 supports Microsoft ® Windows 2000 (SP4), Microsoft ® Windows XP (SP2/SP3), Microsoft ® Vista , Microsoft ® 7 and Mac 10.5 above.

E FUN APEN's A2 digital pen will be available first on HSN this month with an MSRP of $99.99.
