Portable dock lets you scan documents into your iPad on the go

We still need scanners, but for many of us they've become too unwieldy to fit neatly into our increasingly mobile computing set-ups. But this new iPad-friendly device could be the last scanner you'll ever need.

The iConvert Scanner for iPad is the very definition of simplicity. You simply dock your iPad or iPad 2 onto the sleek device, fire up the iConvert iPad app, and feed your documents into it. Afterwards the scanned high-resolution 300dpi document can be saved on the iPad or emailed like any other document. This level of ease-of-use could actually make scanning a bit fun again.

The iConvert Scanner for iPad will go on sale next month for $149.99 here, but in the meantime you can see it in action in the video below.
