Fujitsu ScanSnap iX100 delivers wireless scanning ability wherever you go
When it comes to scanners, I am quite sure that those of us who have been around long enough would be able to remember the old scanners that seem to take forever to boot up before a particular image can be scanned. It will crank, make more noise than an aged and rusty Transformer changing form, and work through a slow and bulky parallel port. Well, I am glad to say that technology has advanced rapidly, so much so that modern day scanners are nothing like those of yore. In fact, scanners have become even more portable than ever before, and testament to that claim would be the recently unveiled Fujitsu ScanSnap iX100 wireless scanner.
The Fujitsu ScanSnap iX100 is the most recent addition to the award-winning ScanSnap product range, where it is deemed to be the world’s lightest and fastest ScanSnap that will boast of a built-in rechargeable lithium battery that delivers untethered anywhere, anytime scanning. Tipping the scales at slightly more than 14 ounces, the ScanSnap iX100 will be able to scan a color document at close to 5.2 seconds per page at 300dpi with but a simple push of a button. Apart from that, its focus on mobility means that it will come with both USB and Wi-Fi connectivity options, letting you scan at home, in the office or on the road with peace of mind.
Sporting a similar revolutionary “GI” image processor technology that can be found in the ScanSnap iX500 desktop scanner, the ScanSnap iX100 lets one transmit searchable PDF or JPEG files such as receipts, business documents, bills, business cards, and plastic ID cards in a jiffy to a Windows or Mac computer, not to mention portable devices which run on the iOS, Android and Kindle platforms via the free “ScanSnap Connect” app.
The asking price for the Fujitsu ScanSnap iX100? It is going to arrive with a slight premium attached to it at $229 a pop.
