Scanners have always played an important role at the offices and in a consumer’s working environment. Some years ago scanners were of great importance to update websites with self-made photographs or drawings. With the rising popularity of digital cameras the scanner moved to the background and is no longer a key electronic device for a consumer. Scanners became part of a printer device, combined with All-in-One devices. It is still an interesting digital accessory, although for a lot of consumers there is no need to use it for their daily work or hobbies. The compact scanner is very low-priced and offer almost professional scans with multiple scan ratios. Whether there will be scanner news at the IFA 2010 or not, keep your eye on the special IFA show report.
