∞ Doxie Go scanner gets rid of the computer altogether

Apparent has billed its small Doxie scanner as cloud-friendly from the start. Now they’ve taken it to the next logical step with the Doxie Go, a new iteration of their scanner that removes the computer from the process altogether. Doxie Go is available for pre-order for $199 and ships in late November.

Doxie Go is a 600 dot per inch (DPI) scanner designed for scanning receipts, bills, reports, and anything else on paper. Battery-powered, Doxie Go can go with you when you travel; it features enough on-board memory to store about 600 pages, with expansion through an SD card slot or USB (you can connect a USB thumbdrive to store additional photos).

When it’s convenient or when Doxie Go is full, you connect it to a Mac or PC using a USB cable and the included software, and Doxie Go syncs, creating multi-page, searchable PDF files (OCR software is included). It can also push those files to cloud-based services, uploading images to Flickr, CloudApp, Google Docs, Dropbox and others. Doxie customers also get a free copy of Evernote.

What’s more, an optional $39 Sync Kit enables you to connect Doxie Go to an iPhone or iPad. The peripheral will be available in December.
