scanR Goes Live on 3neXt.

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- scanR, a service that enables camera phones and digital cameras to scan, copy and fax, is now available on 3neXt from the 3 Group.

The 3neXt website (http://next.three.com for computers or http://3next.mobi for phones) provides a lively resource of applications and website reviews for X-Series users and others to continue exploring the world of mobile broadband. In addition to scanR, 3neXt offer links to an ever growing database of applications and websites.

"3's X-Series phones are a glimpse today of the future for all of us. Each X-Series phone has a powerful camera and a flat-rate data plan, so people can freely capture and share the moments that are important to them. Now with scanR, 3's X-Series phones serve as mobile document hubs, which allow users to capture and share their paper documents," said Rudy Ruano, CEO of scanR.

scanR is the easiest way to convert paper into digital information, so people can store, share and search it. With scanR, people can capture the information from handwritten notes, printed documents, business cards and more, with their camera phones. To use scanR, just snap a photo and send it to scanR. The photo is converted into a clear document, with the keywords and contact information extracted from the text, and returned as a searchable PDF or vCard file. scanR will even synchronize your information with popular applications such as Facebook, Salesforce and Plaxo.

Director and General Manager of 3's Handset and Application team Frank Meehan says, "The 3 Group is proud to offer a mobile application which allows customers to turn paperwork into useful digital information in a few simple steps. Customers now have the ability to use their camera phones to scan, copy and fax in creative ways, which are not only fun but incredibly useful."
