Fujitsu unveils portable color, two-way scanner

updated 05:00 pm EDT, Mon October 29, 2007

Fujitsu ScanSnap S300

Fujitsu today released what it hopes is one of the most powerful portable scanners ever: the ScanSnap S300 is less than a foot long and weighs just 3.1 pounds but can scan full color documents at 600 DPI, including two-sided pages; up to 16 effective pages can be captured depending on the settings, Fujitsu says. Though these speeds demand AC power, the S300 will still run at half speed if connected solely through a USB port. The device automatically feeds images itself and is intelligent enough to recognize black-and-white or color pages, misaligned images, and different page formats without any help from the user.

Software is also an important component, Fujitsu says; users can create PDFs of scanned pages, complete with searchable text and password protection for especially sensitive files. Business cards are also recognizable and can synchronize with popular mail programs and address book tools. Fujitsu plans to ship the S300 by November 21st for $300.
