iConvert Scanner Does Not Turn PC Supporters into Mac Fanboys

If you find yourself using an iPad as your main computer, you might want to check out Brookstone’s iConvert Scanner. Just dock the tablet on the scanner, feed it a document and it’ll automatically be saved to the iPad’s photo library, ready to be emailed, tweeted or used as a wallpaper.

The iConvert measures 12.1″x 4.4″x 2.8″ and weighs only 1.44 lbs., but it’s powered by an AC adapter so it’s not as portable as the iPad. As you’d expect, you need to download a complementary app to use the iConvert, but aside from that it seems like there’s no other setup required. It’ll scan documents between 2″ to 8½” wide, with the usual preview, save and delete options. And it has that neat animation where the document looks like it’s going into the tablet. Take that, desktop scanner!

Head to Brookstone to pre-order the iConvert for $150 (USD). I like that it’s easy to setup and extends the functionality of the iPad, but I still think it’s overpriced. But that’s because I rarely need to scan documents.
