Evernote appears to have taken a small step away from digital, at least for a moment, and announced a partnership with Moleskine. Yup, a paper notebook from Evernote. The notebook is the Evernote Smart Notebook by Moleskine and is available for pre-order as of today.
The notebook will be available in a Pocket ($24.95) and Large ($29.95) option. The Pocket size will measure in at 3.5 x 5.5 inches and the Large will measure in at 5 x 8.25 inches. Both will be available with an option for Ruled or Squared paper.
That being said, lets dive into the features of the notebook — a paper notebook that has features. Evernote has dubbed these as being “New Features. Magical Pages. Smart Stickers.” And in fact, the notebook does have features and come with support for the new Page Camera feature (which rolled out in Evernote for iOS version 4.4) and with some stickers. These Page Camera and Smart Sticker features are further described as follows;
- Page Camera automatically improves the contrast of the page and removes any shadows. For the Evernote Smart Notebook by Moleskine, it finds the dot pattern and even corrects the skew of the photo. This means that the images that end up in your account are perfect for Evernote’s handwriting recognition, so that you’ll be able to find you thoughts anytime.
- As if that wasn’t cool enough, in the back pocket of each Moleskine notebook you’ll find a set of multi-color Smart Stickers. When you apply a sticker to a page and take a photo, Evernote recognizes the sticker and instantly associates a tag with the note or places it into a notebook that you specify in your Settings. The Smart Stickers come with some pre-defined tags, but you can customize them to be whatever you want.
While available for pre-order, the Evernote Smart Notebook is not expected to begin shipping until October 1st. Finally, those who make a purchase will also get three months of Evernote Premium for free. The Premium level gives you a higher monthly upload capacity, improved searching for PDFs and images and more note sharing options.
