The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100 portable document scanner retains many of the features of its desktop counterpart.
In iVina’s booth, the company displayed a complete line of BulletScan documents scanners, from the small and portable $99 M40 to the $1299 BulletScan F600 with a daily duty cycle of 3500 pages. Most interesting was iVina’s $299 BulletScan S300 which can work as a portable single-sheet duplexing document scanner or can be docked to take advantage of a 20-sheet automatic document feeder.
IRIS had a couple of new products to show off at Macworld. Its $99 IRISPhoto 4 is not, as its name might suggest, the fourth iteration of the IRISPhoto product line—this is a brand new product. It features a rechargeable battery and 512MB of internal storage that can hold up to 2000 4 x 6-inch 300dpi scans, allowing you to sit in front of the TV, for instance, and casually load photos into the half pound device. When you’re finished, plug it into your Mac and the scanner mounts to your desktop. Drag the files to iPhoto or the included ACDSee Express 2 software.
IRIS also showed off a $199 portable document scanner, the IRIScan anywhere 2. Unlike other portable document scanners, the IRIScan Anywhere 2 has a rechargeable battery and a 512MB of internal memory, as well as an SD card slot and a USB thumb drive slot for additional storage. When connected via USB to your computer, it mounts to your desktop like any storage device. You can then bring the files into the ReadIRIS Pro 12 OCR software or CardIRIS Pro 5 business card processing application
