I.R.I.S. on Monday introduced the IRISCard mini, a business card scanner that’s compatible with Mac OS X and Windows. The IRISCard mini costs €149 (US$174.69). The device is expected to be available in retailers through Europe, North America and online.
The IRISCard mini is designed to be a smaller and more portable alternative to I.R.I.S.’s Business Card Reader II. And unlike that other device, the IRISCard mini ships out of the blister pack compatible with both Mac and Windows (the Business Card Reader II was shipped separately for both platforms).
The IRISCard mini is a scanner that lets you scan business cards in black and white or greyscale. It includes Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software that automatically reads the card, and sends the data to their appropriate fields, then exports the data to contact management software including Apple Address Book. The software recognizes business cards from up to 54 different countries.
System requirements were not available.
I.R.I.S. Web site had not been updated with product information about the IRISCard mini as MacCentral posted this article.
