Xerox has unveiled a flatbed scanner that can be used to scan in and digitise documents and then share and organise them. The Xerox 7600i can scan documents up to A4 in size at a resolution of 1200x1200 dots per inch. It supports a colour depth of 48bit.
Flatbed scanner is powered by USB alone
The 1.6kg scanner can be powered from a USB port on a laptop or PC and has a removable lid to make it easier to scan in large items such as pages from coffee table books or magazines. Xerox includes Visioneer OneTouch scanning software to automate most of the settings and to handle post-scanning functions such as sending the digital document to a specific location for storage or sharing.
The £67 flatbed scanner has three preconfigured but customisable buttons on its front to scan, copy or email documents. Once scanned, documents can be sent for archiving or sharing via Google Docs, Evernote, Dropbox and Box.net.
The device is available in Europe now. Further information, include details of UK stockists, can be found at www.xeroxscanners.com.
