Bluegate GPRS Digital Pen edition is a portable battery powered Quad band GPRS modem with Bluetooth interface enabling wireless cummunications between digital pen devices.

Designed to work with Digital pen and paper technology it captures handwritten data from the digital pen over Bluetooth from about 30 meters and sends it back to the office in an instant. The modem is a more reliable, simpler,cheaper and faster solution the a mobile phone. Bringing a lof of value to the digital pen eco system.

Once paired with a pen it operates with a single power button along with a long list of LED indicators including Bluetooth, Network, Transmit and bars of LEDs for signal and battery similar to a mobile phone display.

Power is supplied by the built in rechargeable Li-ion battery pack which lasts for a full day of abuse and recharges through the on board mini USB jack by a PC USB port or the supplied power adapter. Charging time is about 3.5 hours and the progress is displayed on the battery LED bars. When the battery reaches a full charge the LED stops blinking.

The modem provides an exceptional GSM coverage in areas where even mobile phones cant. The range of the Bluetooth is just as exceptional thanks to the Class 1 Bluetooth module which extends the range of the pen from 3 meters to about 30 meters, about 10 times the range.

Supported Digital pen models include the Logitech io2 Bluetooth and the Maxell DP-201.

The hardware is designed with some of the best components available ensuring reliable operation and long life. Our expected battery life cycle is about 4 years which also complies with the IEEE1725 standard for safety. The product is designed and will be manufactured in the US and complies with the RoHS standard.

An extensive amount of testing has been performed in the last few months by third party companies to ensure design integrity which resulted in a lot of WOWs.

The modem is a more cost effective solution then a comparable mobile phone. It eliminates the need of an additional voice plan which is associated with most mobile phones which in terms translates into hundreds of Dollars of annual costs. On top of that the modem requires a minimal data plan which we provide starting at $4.95 and up without a contract. The operation of the modem is controlled by a single button, once powered up the modem is ready to receive data from the pen. The pairing information of the pen is stored in the non volatile memory and will never be lost even if the device runs out of battery.

Additional user friendly features are planned in the final release before production. Please contact us for more information.
