Livescribe announced today that its Pulse Smartpen is now available in retail outlets. We first reported on the Livescribe Pulse Smartpen back in January when it was seen at CES 2008. The pen captured handwriting while recording audio at the same time and syncs the audio to the writing.

Two different Pulse models are offered with one having 1GB of storage and the other having 2GB of storage. The bad part about the pens is that they require special paper to operate. The Livescribe Dot paper and other accessories will be available at Amazon.com and at Target stores starting on July 13th. The 1GB model is $149 and the 2GB is $199. The required notebooks are $20 per four pack. The accessories and pens will be available on July 13th at Target and July 1st at Amazon.
"Our partnerships with Target, Amazon, and Douglas Stewart will greatly expand the availability of Pulse smartpens and accessories to consumers across the country," said Byron Connell, chief marketing officer at Livescribe. "At Target stores, consumers will be able to see the Pulse smartpen first hand and learn more about its capabilities through an interactive video demonstration."
