NEW BOOGIE BOARD™ JOT LCD eWRITER TO MAKE EUROPEAN DEBUT AT IFA
Boogie Board Rip™ LCD eWriter with Virtual Desktop Companion 2.0 Software Upgrade also will be Exhibited.
Kent, Ohio, USA – Tuesday, August 28, 2012: Improv Electronics announced today it will feature the new Boogie Board Jot LCD eWriter at the upcoming IFA Consumer Electronics Unlimited Show in Berlin, Germany from August 31 – September 5, 2012. The Boogie Board Jot eWriter will begin shipping to European retailers in late September 2012.
Boogie Board eWriters are tree-friendly, electronic alternatives to paper and pens that utilize revolutionary Reflex® No Power LCDs as their writing and drawing surface.
Improv Electronics invites IFA attendees to visit its interactive booth (#154) in the iZone section of Hall 15.1 at the Messe Berlin Fairgrounds for a hands-on demo of the Boogie Board Jot 8.5 LCD eWriter and Virtual Desktop Companion 2.0 software for the Boogie Board Rip LCD eWriter.
The Boogie Board Jot eWriter includes many exciting features:
- A sleek and contemporary metallic-look design available with red, blue and graphite accents
- Soft-touch back to provide grip and stability
- Tapered stylus that doubles as a stand for horizontal viewing (great for leaving messages on the kitchen counter)
- Integrated magnets for mounting to refrigerators, file cabinets and other metallic surfaces
- Replaceable coin cell battery (each battery provides up to 50,000 erases)
- Erase lock switch to prevent accidental erasure of written/drawn images
The Boogie Board Rip LCD eWriter saves written and drawn images as vector PDFs and transfers them to a computer. The Virtual Desktop Companion 2.0 software upgrade features Evernote® integration and a virtual whiteboard mode. The files saved by the Boogie Board Rip eWriter are also now compatible with MyScript® HWR software. Representatives from Vision Objects will be in the Improv Electronics booth beginning Monday, September 3 to demonstrate MyScript’s handwriting recognition capabilities for Boogie Board Rip eWriter-generated files.
“We are extremely excited to be back at IFA for the second year in row,” said Improv Electronics European Sales Manager Hafiz Haq. “The tremendous interest in Boogie Board eWriters at last year’s show has resulted in record sales in 2012. The Boogie Board Jot eWriter and Virtual Desktop Companion 2.0 software for the Boogie Board Rip eWriter are sure to generate even greater global demand — helping us come closer to a truly paperless society.”
In addition to exhibiting at IFA, Improv Electronics will be presenting the full line of Boogie Board LCD eWriters to the media at the Showstoppers @ IFA event from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, August 30 in building 15.2 of the Messe Berlin Fairgrounds.
