Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

TEL AVIV, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 27, 2003

The touch-pad battery-powered calculator, which was developed by Power Paper, is integrated into the inside cover of Black n' Red notebooks, available in four lines, A4 and A6 wirebound and casebound ruled notebooks.

Both models have a 500-hour life span and are ideal for taking notes at meetings.

"We look forward to achieving the same or better results with the A6 notebook and on future collaborations."
