Scan Without Cables
The more mobile our lives become, the more annoyed we become when we have to bring a wire with us — electrical cords, headphones, and worst of all — USB cables, which probably outnumber people by 10 to one at this point. Until now, if you wanted to scan documents on the go, you needed a USB cable not to mention a laptop. A new scanner eliminates the need for both — and you don't need a power cord either.
Doxie Go … in One Sentence
Apparent Corporation's Doxie Go is a portable color document and photo scanner.
The Killer Feature
Thanks to a rechargeable battery and an SD card slot, Doxie Go enables you to scan without any cables or a connection to a computer.
Other Notable Features
Doxie Go measures 10.5 x 1.7 x 2.2 inches and weighs just under a pound. It scans at 8 seconds per page at 300 dpi (you can scan at 600 dpi for higher quality). It outputs scans in PDF, JPG, or PNG format.
When you finish scanning, you can move your scans to a Mac or PC via a USB cable, or to an iPad or iPhone via the optional iPhone/iPad Sync Kit or Apple's similar Camera Connection Kit.
The included Doxie Go 2.0 software automatically cleans, rotates, and straightens your scans. Because the scanner lacks an ADF, the software can stitch together related pages into a single document. You can send your files to any local application as well as to cloud applications such as Evernote, Google Docs, and Dropbox. Also included is ABBYY OCR software for creating searchable PDF files.
What Else Should You Know?
Doxie Go costs $199, including a carrying case, SD memory card, and USB cable (which also charges the scanner). The iPhone/iPad Sync Kit costs $39 and the Doxie Go Kit (a universal wall charger and extra USB cable) costs $19. Learn more about Doxie Go.
