PlanOn DocuPen X05


This tiny device allows professionals to scan on the go, beaming their data to smart phones or laptops.

Slim, lightweight design ; Bluetooth connection is easy to enable ; Compatible with BlackBerrys and Macs ; Charges via USB ; microSD Card slot included

Incapable of scanning multiple pages or cards in one fell swoop ; Somewhat confusing interface ; Difficult to share data with smart phones

The stylus-shaped design of the s far lighter than other mobile scanners, and frees road warriors from superfluous cables and AC adapters. We especially like the ability to send scans to BlackBerry devices over Bluetooth. For power users, this device...

Planon DocuPen X05 portable scanner review


Scanners, unsurprisingly, lag behind other areas of consumer electronics when it comes to raw appeal, but if you're determined to grab attention then Planon's DocuPen X05 isn't a bad place to start. A slender, battery powered scanning wand, the X05...

Planon DocuPen Xtreme X05 review


The PlanOn DocuPen Xtreme X05 is a fully functional document scanner in the size and shape of a pen.

Product Specifications

Planon DocuPen is a handheld scanner that operates on batteries for full portability purposes. The DocuPen is capable of storing up to 100 pages into memory and takes approximately 4 to 8 seconds per second. The DocuPen is different from other pen scanners in that it scans a full page width and therefore scans the entire page including text and graphics in just 4 seconds. Other handheld and pen scanners only scan single lines of text or records handwriting and cannot scan graphics making them much less practical. In comparison, the DocuPen is truly a breakthrough in technological development because it fully realizes the potential of what other pen size scanners tried to accomplish. The need for convenient out of office scanning is enormous but has not been satisfied because the products to date did not fulfill that need adequately. As the fax evolved from the telex, to successfully satisfy its communication need, the DocuPen is the practical solution to the pen scanners finally opening the market for wide spread acceptance.
