2008 JavaOne Conference Show Devices

Pulse Smartpen from Livescribe

The Pulse “smartpen” from Livescribe is a computer within a pen that captures handwriting and simultaneously records and synchronizes audio to the writing. Users can simply tap on their notes to replay what was recorded from the exact moment they were writing, so they never miss a word. The Pulse is available in two models. A JavaOne conference special edition of the 1-gigabyte Pulse smartpen is available only at the Conference for $139. The Pulse is also available in a 2-gigabyte model for $199 from www.livescribe.com.

The Pulse smartpen features an ARM 9 processor, a high-speed infrared camera with a Dot Positioning System, a rechargeable lithium battery, a high-contrast display, dual embedded microphones, and a 3-D recording headset. Further, the Smartpen is a platform with rich I/O capabilities and a Java(TM) integrated development environment that enables a wide range of applications.

Sony Ericsson K850i

The Sony Ericsson K850i mobile phone introduces new features for communication life with extraordinary new functionality from Cyber-shot. The exclusive JavaOne conference price is $299 and includes the HBH-PV712 Bluetooth headset accessory. The Sony Ericsson K850i will be delivered directly to your home. The elegant stick form factor has a large 2.2-inch QVGA 262,000-color screen. Memory capacity is up to 40 megabytes internally, and the device includes a combo reader for memory cards.

The K850i, which is based on fully MSA-compliant Java(TM) Platform 8 (JP-8) technology, supports a range of new Java platform programming features and is a key foundation for application integration. The high-performance multitasking characteristics enable multiple applications to run simultaneously and allow you to easily switch between them. The feature-richness of the platform enables a vast number of applications, ranging from games and information to entertainment, complementing the basic features of the K850i.

Sentilla Perk Kit

The Sentilla Development Kit (a $399+ value) is being offered to JavaOne conference attendees at a special price of only $199.

• Three wireless nodes with storage, wireless radio, an accelerometer, and LEDs

• Solderless connectors with a wide range of sensor-based peripherals (GPS, light sensors, and pressure sensors)
