Doxie Go Smart Scanner - Compact and portable, scan anywhere!

These days most people have an All-In-One printer/scanner/copier – they´re convenient and cut down the number of different devices you need cluttering up your desk. But they´re not much use if you´re short on space or want something more compact and portable. Well fret no more, take a gander at the Doxie Go Smart Scanner.

Measuring a compact 27cm x 4.35cm x 5.6cm and weighing a measly 400g (less than a bag of sugar), the Go Smart Scanner is certainly lithe, slimline and ready to go wherever you need it. It doesn´t even need a chunky power supply, it runs from a built in Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery which is good for 100 scans per charge, and only needs about 2 hours to re-charge via the USB connector.

But it´s no good being a compact lightweight if the Go Smart Scanner is also a lightweight performer. Thankfully this isn´t the case – the Go Smart Scanner can handle resolutions up to 600dpi and document sizes anywhere from business card up to A4. And the Doxie Go Smart Scanner is no slouch – 8 seconds per A4 page and 5 seconds per photo, so no hanging around either.

There is enough built-in memory to store up to 600 pages or 2400 photos, and an SD memory card slot to expand this further if you want to scan the Encyclopaedia Brittanica. And when you´re done go back to your office or home, connect to your computer via USB and upload your scans in seconds.

Doxie Go Smart Scanner - Easily scan pages in colour or black and white

The Doxie Go Smart Scanner comes with included software to make handling your scans as easy as pie. You can even publish them to the internet directly using a free app for the iPad and iPhone, so you´ll be able to access them from wherever you happen to be.

Portability is the key to the Go Smart Scanners appeal. Tucked away in its handy travel pouch ready to be whipped out at the first sign of a bit of fast scan action – what more could a busy business-person-about-town need?
