October 31, 2006 The newly announced Visioneer RoadWarrior looks to be one of those items that will find itself incorporated into the travelling kit of most mobile professionals. Based on Visioneer’s award-winning Strobe design, it measures only 2 x 1.5 x 11.4 inches (5.1 x 3.8 x 30cm), weighs just 10 ounces (283 gm), scans 36-bit color and comes with an array of very useful full version software for an all-up of US$200. The RoadWarrior is powered via USB and automatically begins scanning when a document is inserted enabling scanned receipts to be combined with virtually any expense report form, business cards to be captured, recognised and exported to all leading contact managers, PDAs and smart phones and the ability to scan and convert documents into searchable PDF files that are easily organized, shared and better protected. Visioneer has also signed a distribution agreement to bundle Google Search Tools that allow road warriors to quickly find documents and maps for important business meetings.
