Does anyone know of anything currently on the market similar to the CrossPad?
It's been discontinued.
Looking for something cheaper than a full-fledged tablet PC, just to capture hand sketches and diagrams. Handwriting recognition is not a requirement.
I've seen things like this. The one I actually worked with a bit was a giant suction-cup thingy that read your pen's position on the white board, as long as you were also using the special white-board-marker-sleeve.
I can't name any names, but as of 3 or 4 years ago, at least a couple of things like this existed.

I'm mainly interesting in something that will capture sketches and other handwritten "brainstorming" type information.
Axim, Palm, etc. are just too small to support that very well.
The whiteboards that can print/scan are OK but obviously not very portable.
Yes I could just scan pages from a notebook but ideally am looking for something that would capture the drawing, etc. directly.
The Logitech pen looks intereesting -- requires special paper though. Might be worth a try anyway.
