Turn Your Camera Phone Into A Scanner

Here is a nifty service. If you have a cameraphone with at least 1-megapixel of resolution, ScanR will take an image from it and create a searchable PDF file.

Scan, copy and fax with your camera phone or digital camera.
scanR uses advanced imaging processing and data extraction technologies to convert photos into legible, searchable PDF files.

Document tagging
Each document sent to scanR is tagged with the keywords extracted from the text on the page. This enables easy organization of documents scanned with scanR and quick searches using Google™ Desktop or other desktop search tools.

Image processing
Without scanR, your images will contain background noise, soft focus, shadows, and poor alignment. scanR corrects these deficiencies and creates a true copy of your whiteboard or document. Take a look at these images and see for yourself

They also have a software package that can be installed on phones running Windows Mobile 5.0.
