The latest in handheld document scanning technology, DocuPen RC800 lets you scan hundreds of pages in literally no time. Just choose your mode — black and white, standard color or high 24-bit color — and a resolution from 100 to 400 dpi, and start scanning your letters, color documents and photos into the included Paperport software for download through the USB port on your computer. Unlike other scanners that only scan single lines of text, the DocuPen’s width means it can scan an entire page at once, including text and graphics, in as little as four seconds. And, at just two ounces and 8 inches long, it’s as compact as it is capable. $299.99. http://www.planon.com
