If you need to digitize printed documents or photos while on the go, the Xerox Mobile Scanner fits the bill--and it does so with a twist. About the size of a roll of aluminum foil and weighing about 1.5 pounds, this $250 (as of March 8, 2012) sheet-fed scanner can turn printed items into PDFs or JPGs, and then send them wirelessly to a PC, a mobile device, or the Web in a matter of seconds. It can do all of that for up to 300 pages (according to Xerox) without being connected to electrical power, assuming that you've fully charged its internal battery. And it doesn't need a preexisting Wi-Fi network either, as it can create a direct connection to any other Wi-Fi-enabled device. Created by Visioneer (which offers a similar but not identical product under its own brand), the Xerox Mobile Scanner innovates primarily in its use of an Eye-Fi SD Card--a gadget best known for both storing images and functioning as a Wi-Fi adapter, enabling the wireless transfer of images captured by a digital camera. The Eye-Fi card that comes bundled with the Xerox Mobile Scanner was created for the product. It can store up to 4GB of scans, so you don't have to transfer them right away.
Nearly identical to the Editors' Choice Visioneer Mobility ($199.99 direct, 4 stars), the Xerox Mobile Scanner ($249.99 direct) adds a single feature to justify its higher price: an Eye-Fi card that can automatically send scan results to your Android or iOS phone or tablet by WiFi as you scan. As with the Visioneer model, this solves the key issue for scanning without a computer: it lets you see the scan quality while you can still rescan if you need to. The Mobile Scanner's Eye-Fi card is a more expensive solution than the Mobility's USB cable, but it's also a lot slicker, making the Xerox Mobile Scanner just as much an Editors' Choice. Eye-Fi cards, like the Editors' Choice Eye-Fi Mobile X2 ($79.99 direct, 4 stars) are separate, standalone products. The size of an SD card, they slip into a card slot to provide various amounts of memory, and WiFi capability. They're also meant to be used with the Eye-Fi Web site, which I'm basically going to ignore for purposes of this review. Although Eye-Fi cards are generally used with cameras, you can buy one separately to use with the Visioneer Mobility if you like.
