contest – Win a DocuPen Scanner Executive Kit

While at CES, I stopped by the PlanOn booth to speak to them about the RC800 scanner that I purchased last year . While visiting with them, they showed me their new DocuPen Executive Kit and offered to send me one to give away on You can read my review on of the RC800 here.

After returning from CES, it slipped my mind and didn’t think much more about it until FedEx showed up with this $399 Executive Kit! So, again, we are passing along the mobile goodness and some lucky GBM reader will be the beneficiary and find FedEx delivering their own RC800 scanner and kit. We are going to run this contest similar to the way I ran last year’s.
