At first glance this does not look like a scanner. Light, compact and an unconventional shape would excuse you from making this assumption. This, however, is not intended to lie in your office, but has been made with portability in mind. Take it with you on your business travels, allowing for quick and easy duplicating of any documents needed. The product was revealed three months ago, but has only now started being shipped. The Doxie scanner retails at $129, and is likely to prove a trusty companion for all your business expeditions.
The scanner is extremely lightweight, weighing in at a mere 10.9 ounces. It is also USB powered, allowing you to scan paper directly to PC's, Macs and a selection of web apps such as Acrobat, Flickr and Google Docs. With no power cable required, simply plug in the USB cable and you're ready to scan. The Doxie scanner will scan any document in full colour up to 600 dpi, and could not be simpler to use - simply press the DOxie 'Heart' Button on the scanner and scanning will begin.
