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.
The Canon Imageformula P-150 is the latest mobile scanner from Canon. It sells for under $300 online, and can scan at duplex up to 20 sheets per sitting. A perfect portable scanning companion for your mobile office. Definitely compact in size, light-weight and measuring only 11 x 3.7 x 1.6-inches, the P-150 is thin enough to slip in your laptop bag or rucksack.
