Adesso CyberPad A4

by Mark R

Adesso’s CyberPad A4 is not the iPad by any stretch of the imagination, but it certainly is useful.

I’m guessing the audience for this device is students or anyone else who has to take notes frantically in the classroom. I have found that a laptop or netbook is useless for taking notes when the teacher is drawing shapes and equations on the blackboard that will be on the test later.

Despite our technology, Pen and Paper is still the best way to go as far as taking notes in class is concerned. However, the CyperPad A4 is able to take whatever you want to write on its notebook better than a digital pen, and then saves it to its 32MB of internal memory.

If 32MB is not enough, then you can add on more with the integrated SD slot and reader. When you want your notes back, you can just connect the included USB cable to your computer and download the notes with special software. This included software can also translate handwriting into text.

Granted, the handwriting recognition isn’t always accurate. That, or I need to write a whole lot neater. Yes, I got a chance to try it out, and I might just start writing my entries with it.

The Adesso CyberPad A4 is available from the Adesso site itself, for a price of about $160. This price includes the software like Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.0.

Can you connect the Cyberpad to say a laptop and type directly onto the pad from the laptop keyboard and than pick up the pen and draw where neccesary?
