PlanOn Announces ScanStik – World’s Smallest Scanner

PlanOn, a leader in scanning and printing solutions, announced today they will be releasing the ScanStik, which is billed as “the world’s smallest scanner”.  The pen-sized device is capable of full-color, full-page scans and will easily fit in a pocket.  It’s designed for business travelers who have a need for such a device, but also some individual users may find it helpful for doing research in libraries and other such locations.

PlanOn claims a full-page scan takes as little as 4 seconds.  It features a DPI resolution of up to 600 (it can also do 150 and 300), 24 bit color, a rechargable lithium polymer battery, microSD card slot, and an LED function display.  The device is compatible with Windows 7, Vista, and XP.  It will ship with PaperPort OCR software and a USB cable for connection to your computer or tablet.

The ScanStik is available for immediate shipment.  It retails for $159.99 and can be purchased directly from the PlanOn web site, and will likely be available soon from other locations such as Amazon.
