Image Recognition Integrated Systems (IRIS) released IRIS Business Card Reader II at Apple Expo.

The latter product ships with IRIS' updated business card recognition software, Cardiris 3.

Together, these products let users scan business card data directly into Apple's Address Book, Entourage, Now Contact and other information management software packages. The software will also export scanned contact details directly into an iPod, PDA or mobile using Apple's iSync software.

Cardiris 3 offers a redesigned interface, and once a countyry of origin for the card is selected, all a user need do is scan, choosing export formats for the scanned data once the scan is complete.

The company also announced new versions of its pen-shaped scanenrs, the IRISPen Express and IRISPen Executive.
