Pentax DSmobile 600

Pentax this morning announced details of its new DSmobile 600 portable scanner. The USB-based device is the company's highest-resolution mini-scanner to date and can scan documents as small as business cards or sheets as large as 8.5 x 14 inches. The increased image quality has no impact on power consumption, the company says. The scanner uses no more than two watts of power during even the heaviest scanning activity and can be powered entirely through the USB cable. A convenient quick-access button launches the user's preferred scanning program. Although designed initially for Windows, the company says its scanner is Mac-compatible and gains full TWAIN scanner control through a downloadable driver for Mac OS X 10.3 or later. The DSmobile 600 begins shipping in January for $135.
