While at CES, we spent some time visiting with Targus. Among the new items they were showing off was the $179.99 iNotebook, which “seamlessly transmits your handwritten notes to your iPad using the included sensor and pen.”

If it sounds too good to be true, then you might want to check out this quick demo of Judie writing on paper and seeing the text rendered on the iPad in real-time.

The iNotebook wirelessly transfers handwritten notes and sketches to an iPad using Bluetooth technology. It requires no special paper and is compatible with standard A5 and 8” x 5” notepads. That includes large Moleskine® notebooks. It has integrated memory so you can capture notes even when the iPad isn’t handy. With it you can “write now and transfer later”. And when you are ready you can email or print notebooks, pages and audio files. Best of all, because it uses Bluetooth rather than a physical docking solution, the iNotebook is compatible with all iPads.

We have one on the way for review; you can learn more about the iNotebook by clicking here.
