I’m sure there a lot of mobile business users out there who like to have the ability to scan documents or receipts and then e-mail them rather than having to search out a fax machine. Genius has a new portable scanner called the Podpad that let you do just that. The scanner works with an application available for Android, BlackBerry, and Windows smartphones.
The pages that are scanned using the scanner are sent in PDF format via Bluetooth to the smart phone. The scanner supports documents up to 8.5 x 14-inches in size. It can scan up to six pages per minute.
The scanner comes with a PC adapter for car, and a wall adapter for powering the device via USB. It can also be connected to your computer via a USB port for scanning directly to a PC. The scanner is available right now for $219.Filed Under: USB Gadgets
