Anoto to launch long awaited Echo II in February

Anoto Group AB (publ) (“Anoto” or “the Company”) announces that the Company will be launching new Echo II pens from February 2022. Echo II, the new audio pen which replaces the best-selling Echo pen will be ready to launch with new features, including a state-of-the-art noise cancellation technology, which significantly eliminates paper scratching sound.

“There were some confusions regarding the timing of the launch of Echo II. I decided that we will start production in January and start selling Echo II pens from February next year. There is a significant pent- up demand for an audio pen (Echo) which has been the perennial best seller among entire Anoto ecosystem. The updated software is also ready which will make the Echo experience much better than the last version. The new Echo II has not only a desktop application but can be used in conjunction with Livescribe+ mobile app. Echo II also has Bluetooth connectivity which was not available in the previous version. We believe the launch of Echo II will reboot Livescribe sales,” says Joonhee Won, CEO of Anoto.
