At the end of September, Casio will release the Paper Writer, an Android tablet developed primarily for business use, which can scan handwritten documents in one action.
The case of the Paper Writer is shaped like a book cover, with space for a notepad opposite the tablet, and by closing the cover you can scan handwritten documents. Also, if a lot of documents need to be scanned, you can stand the tablet up and image documents by leafing through them in front of the case.
“You can convert ordinary notes to digital data, and you can also classify the data. For example, if you register marks for categories like “important”, the Paper Writer automatically recognizes your handwritten marks, and organizes the notes. You can also link the data to your schedule.”
The Paper Writer features a pair of 5-megapixel cameras, a 10.1-inch backlit display, and a 1.5-GHz dual-core processor, with the top-end model supporting LTE.
The 7,000 mAh high-capacity battery enables the Paper Writer to be used for about 12 hours. The battery is also replaceable, so if you carry a spare you can get your work done without having to worry about battery life
“The screen is bright, so you can use the Paper Writer outdoors. It can withstand being dropped from 1 m, and it’s dust and moisture resistant, so it can be used in the field. This model is designed not to break even after years of use.”
“It has an NFC reader-writer, so it supports IC card log-in and RFID tag scanning.”
“We expect the Paper Writer will be used in jobs that involve traveling around, and for in-store work that was previously done with mobile data terminals.”
