Tiny Wireless Barcode Scanners

We received a request to look into wireless handheld barcode scanners that can be linked to tablets.  We bought one and have been playing around (ahem, testing) with it and it's really slick.

It is called a Unitech MS910.  It connects through Bluetooth with any capable device and it works (nearly) just as good as the desktop scanners.  In the office we connected it to an iPad and, with a little configuration effort, we were able to successfully circulate library books with it.  Pretty cool, eh?

What advantage does this have over a barcode scanner app that could be installed on the hand held device? Just being able to scan things without bringing the iPad right next them?
