Is the Xerox Mobile Scanner Good? 'Very Good' Says PC Magazine
PLEASANTON, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
The news is good, "very good" indeed about the Xerox
Mobile Scanner. That's the rating it received March 31 from PC
Magazine, the popular go-to source for reviews of computers and
related products. Reviewers wrote "scanning with the Mobile Scanner
couldn't be easier."
(NYSE: XRX) is celebrating the awards and recognition won by its
Xerox Mobile Scanner, launched just four months ago. To date, the
cordless mobile scanner has won the PC Magazine Editors' Choice Award;
received a near perfect 4.5 out of 5 star rating from PC
World Magazine, Network
World Magazine and About.com
and garnered positive reviews from The
New York Times, Computerworld
David Pogue at The New York Times wrote, "Xerox has done a beautiful job
of making its machine solid, simple and competent." After putting the
scanner through a thorough review, Pogue determined that "the scans are
clean, straight and sharp. You'd have a hard time telling them apart
from the work of a big-footprint desktop flatbed home scanner."
The Xerox Mobile Scanner is the first battery powered scanner that
includes a 4GB custom Eye-Fi card that uses Wi-Fi to wirelessly transmit
JPG images and multipage PDF files from the scanner to computers, mobile
phones, pads and the cloud. A truly mobile device in every sense of the
word, Xerox Mobile Scanner gives users the power to take the information
in their hand and share it with the world in seconds. Using a free
mobile app, the device is able to communicate wirelessly to a PC, Android (News - Alert)®,
Mac®, iPhone®, iPad®, iPod®
touch, or the Cloud.
Recent reviews gave the highest marks to these features:
No wires or cables needed
Battery delivers up to 300 pages per charge
Ability to scan without a computer
Wireless (WiFi (News - Alert)) transfer of scans to a smartphone or computer.
Reviewers at PCWorld.com said the Xerox Mobile Scanner "…delivers on its
promise of quickly creating scans in popular formats and moving them
wirelessly to PCs, mobile devices, or the Web. While smartphone cameras
can do some of this work for smaller documents, business travelers with
more serious scanning needs should find the Xerox Mobile Scanner a
versatile and useful tool."
The Xerox Mobile Scanner has a U.S. list price of $249.99 and is available
immeditely through retail and online channel partners, major resellers,
and its agents and dealers.
