Plustek has launched a portable scanner known as the MobileOffice D428. The 960g colour scanner is just 4in wide and 12in long. It scans documents at a modest resolution of 600dpi (dots per inch).

It offers one-touch scanning and offers a number of different file-format outputs including TIFF, JPEG, BMP and PNG. The MobileOffice D428 also comes with built in automatic image processing, OCR (optical character recognition) and comes with the latest version of DocAction software.

Plustek says the MobileOffice D428 can scan both sides of an A4 document in 2.2 seconds and can handle media up to 1.2mm thick.

The Plustek MobileOffice D428 will be available from January. Pricing details have not yet been released.
