Doxie Scanner Sends, Shares, Stores on the Cloud
Doxie offers crisp and clean paper scans in a small, portable USB-powered package. With no power cables or irritatingly impossible to install drivers (though we do have workarounds available) - Doxie works with a simple app and a touch of a button. Which makes us wonder, "Why can't all scanners be this easy?"
The little scanner offers scans up to 600dpi in 24bit color and scans as fast as 12 seconds per page. The package is pretty sweet too - it comes with the Doxie scanner, companion software, even a carrying case. Just plug her in, fire up the software, and turn your paper into PDFs, JPGs or lossless PNG files - straight into Doxie's own cloud service, which features plenty of integration into existing services out there like Twitter, Flickr, Picasa, Evernote and Google Docs for OCR scanning.
But the real caveat here is the price. You can grab the entire package for around $129. Available later in March.
