Apple Smart Pen?

It's been on the news these days Apple recently patents a smart pen computer.

which has a small LCD screen for displaying emails, texts, alerts, etc. The notes described as: "...A portable computer arranged to rest comfortably in the hand has a small display screen."

To me it's like an Apple brand recorder pen plus mobile features, although the LCD will just be a little small to read.

Still Im pretty anticipated with such a apple product coming out.

Do you think it will soon become a popular hit enough to ahead of other competitors' innovation?
