IRIScan Anywhere 3 2012
Portable scanners aren’t quite the novelty they used to be, that much is true. But they’re no less impressive or useful. The latest IRIScan, the Anywhere 3, follows a long tradition of tiny, wireless document and photo scanners with rechargable batteries. It’s capable of saving your files to its internal storage, an SD card or even a standard USB thumbdrive. At $199 the IRIScan Anywhere 3 isn’t any cheaper than its competitors and, as you can see from the photo above, it’s certainly not the smallest portable scanner. But, it does come with some free apps (Readiris Pro and Cardiris Pro) that let you import contact info from business cards into Outlook or Lotus and turn your scanned docs into editable files through OCR.
