Open question for the group.

I'm looking at the HP 920 Capshare portable scanner for a work application. Anyone have any firsthand knowledge of it's potential?

Many thanks,

Interesting product. I didn't see OCR, which would be of great value in such a device. Also, purely a greyscale venture I see.

Still, if you have a valid business application to capture digital documents as images, it seems like a good choice and you know the company won't go under

Thinking of it for taking off blueprints and consruction spec's while in the field. Particularly like the IR interface for downloading captured info. Looks like .pfd formatting is already onboard which would make document managment about as universal as possible....
