Mobile scanner shootout: Who scans best?

As we move slowly but surely toward a more paper-free existence, we still rely on some physical forms for certain things. In order to best accommodate this transition, you’ll want to have a reliable document scanner, but you probably want to save some space. That’s where the professional mobile scanner market comes into play.

We had the opportunity to look at three of the top offerings in the niche and they each had their respective pros and cons. The Canon Imageformula P-150 is perfectly happy with duplex scanning and offers fast speeds, but the software leaves much to be desired. Similarly, thePlustek MobileOffice AD450 has a 20-sheet capacity and it can even accept plastic cards for scanning. However, it’s boxy shape makes for a challenging fit in most laptop bags.

Review: Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300 mobile scanner

With a small but steadily growing population of the computing force being Mac users, it’s nice to see Fujitsu thinking of us by offering a serious mobile scanning hardware solution. The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300 is just under $300, and will appeal not only by Mac users, but any mobile professional serious about document processing.

The S1300 is silver and gray. It folds down nicely in to a compact 11.18 x 3.90 x 3.03 inches and weighs in at 3.08 lbs. It’s a little bit thick at 3.03-inches, but will fit in to larger laptop bags, perhaps even a large briefcase. I think it could have been a bit thinner, but Fujitsu did a good job of keeping it looking sleek.

Microsoft to let you install mobile apps on memory cards, sticks one to iPhone

When Apple came forward with the App Store for the iPhone, everyone got pretty excited. At the same time apps had already existed on other platforms; just not in a unified storefront. The other trouble was that other smartphones did not have the same kind of internal storage capacity as the iPhone.

As a result, it has been more difficult to install quite as large a number of applications on other smartphones because of internal memory limitations.
