Experience the Freedom of True Mobility with the First Visioneer Cordless Scanner Scan anywhere (even directly to your phone) without a computer, cords or software.

<p>PLEASANTON, Calif., March 22, 2011 – Visioneer, Inc., a leader in intelligent document imaging solutions, today announced Visioneer Mobility, a cordless mobile scanner that functions without a computer, cables, or drivers and scans directly to an SD card or USB memory drive.</p> <p>Priced at only $199.99, Visioneer Mobility is a small (2” x 2.75” x 11.5”) color scanner that includes a 2 GB SD memory card, rechargeable battery and carrying case. No computer or power connection is required to scan. Users simply press the power button, insert SD or USB memory, press the selector button to choose document type and insert a document or photo. Mobility is also the first mobile scanner that can scan directly to smart phones including Android™, Windows® and BlackBerry®.</p> <p>According to Anne Valaitis an Associate Director at InfoTrends, “The rise in the number of mobile knowledge workers, which is approximately 70% of the U.S. office workforce, is creating a need for technology that is compact, easy-to-use, and connects with the mobile devices that drive this new breed of office worker. The convenience of using a smart mobile device to capture a receipt, a signed contract, or an invoice is unmistakable. Visioneer Mobility is a new generation of scanner that is sure to take “mobility” even further as the number and needs of the mobile knowledge worker begin to shift and increase.”</p> <!--break--> <p>“Mobility is elegant in its simplicity and versatility. If you can insert a dollar bill into a vending machine, then you can scan using Visioneer Mobility,” said John Capurso, vice president of marketing at Visioneer. “You do not need any knowledge or training in document scanning to use this device. Once you cut the tether to the computer, you open up countless possibilities for mobile document applications. Once the smartphone and tablet become your document connection to the web or your enterprise, all the rules change for mobile scanning. Mobility is a game changer.”</p> <p>Visioneer Mobility instantly digitizes documents, photos, plastic ID cards and more into one of three file formats: color PDF, black and white PDF or color JPEG. Scanned items can be saved to an SD memory card or a USB flash drive. After scanning items, users can simply eject the removable memory and insert it into any computer with a SD or USB slot, whether Windows, Mac, or Linux. Visioneer Mobility is recognized as a storage device when attached to a computer, so the scanned files can also be easily copied to the hard drive with an included cable.</p> <p>Alternately, a smart phone can be attached to the scanner via the USB port and scanned images will be saved to the phone’s storage media. Scanned images can then be shared by the phone’s email or any document share or social media service. “Why this hasn’t been done sooner is beyond me, but Visioneer has just changed the face of mobile document scanning with their “Visioneer Mobility” scanner,” wrote Fabrizio Pilato, Publisher of Mobile Magazine in his January 6, 2011 news article. “On the outside it looks like your plain old mobile USB scanner, but no, Mobility really means mobility.”</p> <p>Optional Wireless Scanning to the Cloud Mobility can also scan your documents and wirelessly transfer the scanned JPG files with an optional Eye-Fi® card (not included) inserted into your scanner. Eye-Fi is an SDHC memory card that has built-in Wi-Fi.
