Portable scanners aren’t exactly anything new. There was the USB Mini Scanner that lets you scan small-sized cards and documents on the go; while the Copycat Scanner lets you scan high-resolution images of larger documents. The cool thing about the latter device was that you could transfer the scanned images to your iPad by connecting the two with the Apple USB adapter.
If you plan on scanning a lot of images and transferring them all to your iPad though, then you might want to consider getting the iConvert Scanner for iPad instead. This gadget will scan stuff for you and transfer the JPEG images of the scans directly to the “Photos” folder of your tablet. Quick, easy, and convenient.
iConvert Scanner for iPad
Our iConvert Scanner for iPad and iPad 2 Tablets scans hard copies to JPEG files directly to your tablet, giving you instant e-copies of your most important documents. The JPEG files are automatically stored in the picture folder.
Better than basic alternatives, the iConvert Scanner for iPad and iPad 2 Tablets scans in high-resolution 300dpi for clear, crisp JPEG images. And the front feeder adjusts from 2 inches to 8½ inches wide to fit many size photos and important documents.
The iConvert Scanner for iPad is available from Brookstone for $149.99.
