[prMac.com] Raleigh, North Carolina - Doxie, the modern paper scanner that scans directly to the cloud, is now shipping. For home and small business, Doxie makes scanning, sharing, and organizing paper and photos easy for just $129, with a lightweight, portable design built for scanning anywhere.
"Document scanners are frustrating and poorly designed," said Travis J. Hicks, chief operating officer. "Doxie, on the other hand, is amazingly portable, USB powered, and comes with elegant software that scans paper directly to PCs, Macs, and web apps like Google Docs, Evernote, Acrobat, and Flickr. You're bound to be impressed."
At an ultra-light 10.9 ounces, Doxie is built to travel - scan with any PC or Mac with just one connection. Doxie is always ready to scan, offering crisp, clean copies of documents in full color at up to 600 dpi thanks to its patented scanning technology. A single button - Doxie's Heart Button - makes sharing anything on paper fast and seamless. Announced at CES/ShowStoppers and Macworld Expo 2010, Doxie's final shipping version offers additional features including the Doxie Cloud personal document sharing service and sounds from Soundrangers.
