If you were on the fence about the Doxie Go until now, you may want to
wait just a little longer get it now. Doxie just announced an upgrade to its portable document scanner, which it will unveil at CES next week. The scanner itself will accept larger documents, including legal-size pages. The Doxie software adds a handful of new features, like document signing and faxing, integration with Dropbox and Basecamp, and more.
Here are the new features, from Doxie’s press release:
