The $699 Hewlett-Packard CapShare 910 mobile 12.5-ounce scanner runs Microsoft Windows
CE 2.0 and can capture a page in about six seconds.
The CapShare stores up to 50 monochrome, letter-sized page images in Adobe Portable
Document Format or Tagged Image File Format. Users view the pages on the units LCD
monitor and transport them to a PC or printer through a standard serial port or infrared
port. Once captured, a document can be edited, e-mailed or faxed.
The CapShare 910 is the size of a portable CD player. A user clicks and releases the
capture button, slides the device across a page or flat surface with a free-form swiping
motion and then presses the capture button.
Two nickel-metal hydride batteries power up to 100 captures before a recharge,
according to HP officials. The CapShare 910 has a Microsoft Windows Explorer interface.
