Nokia N900 is a Document Scanner too

Nokia N900 users – you can stop spending money on scanning documents. A new app, FrontView900 easily converts your phone into a scanner – and all that for free.

The app (link) uses the inbuilt N900 camera to take snapshots of hand written notes, typed document, name card, etc and converts them into a flatted document image by de-skewing automatically.

Some of the interesting features are

  • Image de-skewing – Convert perspective view image of hand written drawing / notes to front view
  • Paper auto-detection
  • Manual/ semi-automated detection mode for complex image (e.g Use stylus to draw out the input region, the region will be corrected by FrontView900 automatically.)
  • image crop , rotation etc is also supported.

Here are the screenshots
