Planon (http://www.planon.com) has announced the US$159.99 ScanStick, which it says is the world’s smallest full page color scanner. Pen-sized, it can scan a whole page at once just like a flat-bed scanner.
The ScanStik also features a MicroSD memory slot that holds thousands of image scans from 150 to 600 dpi resolution in color or black and white. The scanner features a “click and scan” function that scans a full page in just four seconds. After scanning, plug ScanStik into the USB port of your computer to transfer, recognize, organize, and edit scans with the included ABBYY FineReader SE and PaperPort OCR Software .
ScanStik also includes a rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery, which charges the scanner via the computer’s USB slot. The scanner measures 8.9 x 0.5 x 0.5 inches and scans in 24-bit color.
