iConvert hardware scanner for iPad coming in February

Brookstone is set to launch an iPad specific hardware scanner in February. The scanner has been designed for the road warrior that no longer wants or needs to carry around a laptop, but needs to regularly scan documents on the go .

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. Great for use at home, the office and on the go. The entire scanner is sized to take with you in your messenger bag or backpack.

The scanner has a front document feeder tray which adjusts to accommodate documents from 2 inches to 8.5 inches wide. The scanner works with a free app which will be available from the App Store on launch. The iConvert Scanner will be available in early February and will cost $149.99. With so many software based scanners already available for the iPad 2, it is hard to see where this scanner will fit in. Unless of course you need high quality scans on the  move or have the original iPad without the camera.

I would never stick my social security number or birth certificate on my iPad .. Can you imagine if you lost your iPad and it got in the wrong hands? Can someone say identity theft!

dloveprod says:

I was thinking how a portable printer would come in handy day before yesterday at the city hall.

OMFGitsJustin says:

or you can use JotNot which costs like $2.99. I'm a college student and my school charges us for scanning/copying yet printing is free? So I use the camera on my iPhone oor ipad and take a pic of the pages in JotNot. It processes it and then I can save the scans as PDFs in Dropbox. I "copied" 12 pages yesterday and when I printed them you couldn't tell the difference from my copy and others that paid to use the huge copy machines.

jasondeno says:

Agreed. This is what I do too. The camera works great for a few pages here and there. Anything bigger, save it for the big office scanner.

Bosy says:

Great show guys. Started using AppShopper after last show and I love it thnaks for the suggestion. Gonna go play some ANGRY BIRDS!! (I would love it if I won the poster .derp!)

Randy says:

This wouldn't be necessary if Apple included an auto-focus camera. My Asus transformer does perfect scans. Not my iPad

Frank says:

It needs to scan to PDF. If it only scans to jpeg, I doubt it will be a good seller.
