The good news is that the tablet is finally heading over to U.S. shores and is expected to launch in January 2014. The bad news is that the model starts at $5,999, so expect customers to continue to be big brands like Prada, Ferrari and Lamborghini as they look to jazz up their showrooms.
The Livescribe 3 smartpen launches today with a new design built to work with the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

The One Max, according to MobileGeeks, will include a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 chip, 2GB of RAM, a 3200mAh battery and either 32GB or 64GB of internal memory.
