Nokia Digital Pen SU-27W Review

Introduction and Design

The Finnish manufacturer Nokia brings on the market the interesting “Save your ideas in a pen” solution. We present to your attention the Nokia SU-27W Digital Pen, which comes 5 years after the first model - SU-1B, developing the concept of digital writing. The manufacturer has improved the memory and the battery time, coming up with a design very similar to a regular pen. Even though Nokia offers such type of accessory, the product is a rebrand model of Logitech’s io™2 Digital Pen.

The device targets the people who want to save their notes on paper and digitally at the same time, without losing time in copying.

You have to remember, that the pen recognizes only notes written on digital paper.

At first, the device is not much different in style than a big stylish business pen – its weight - 1.32 oz. (37.5 g) and dimensions of 6.18 x 0.94 x 0.82 inches (157 x 24 x 21 mm), are a bit bigger, but still acceptable. It is entirely made of red quality plastic, pleasant to the touch. Removing the cap, we see, that the lower part is rubber coated for better grip, and it is skewed, where the nib is because of the IR (Infra Red) beam sensor, which records what has been written in the Pen memory. The battery and the page indicators are hidden behind a shiny strip in the upper part. On the other side of the rubber-coated part is located at the connector/charger module and over it is the reset button.

The cap and the pen holder are also black and are made of the materialused to make the entire device, so they fit the design. In the middlethere is a belt/neck/pocket clip, in the center area of which there isa small opening so you can refill.

Writing with the digital pen is pleasant and easy, as using a regular one, just take off the cap. The device fits very well in the palm of a hand and thanks to the rubber-coated part it doesn’t slip.
