Modelry - A Random Walk through Internet Real Estate: New Compact Scanner from Kodak - The Kodak Scanmate i920

New Compact Scanner from Kodak - The Kodak Scanmate i920

I am trying to go paperless in my own life.  My work desk is getting cleaner, but home office is still a disaster - ask my wife. I love scanning my receipts for tax purposes and so my wife can keep track of me (she sees the credit card bills anyways). I have started scanning everything that I can to file it.  Anyways, this new scanner from Kodak seems cool. 

 I will have to check it out when it comes out.

Hello Activerain,

Well over the past year many of you have requested to be notified when Kodak has a small scanner that can give you really fast output while still being compact enough to travel.  We've talked about the benefits of reducing paper and being able to save time while scanning, and our compact Scanmate line has won a lot of fans.  But a common request was always that agents wanted a robust, enterprise-class scanner they could take anywhere easily, and maybe even one that was small enough to use in a car while they are out!

Well - I'm pleased to say we have a new scanner that fits the bill!  Introducing the Scanmate i920!


Now what I'm loving about this scanner is the size - it is small enough to hold in your hands and compact enough to fit into a tote bag.  One of the ways I thought this might be useful to those of you who tote your laptops everywhere is having a DC/AC Inverter for your car's cigarette lighter, and being able to plug this in to scan paperwork wherever you are - then load it to your laptop easily.  (Note: make sure your car battery can handle larger devices being plugged in)   I find that to be rather useful myself, both with rental cars and personal use!

It's also FAST!   The KODAK SCANMATE i920 scans color documents at 15 pages per minute (ppm) and black-and-white documents at 20 ppm, and has both single-sided and double-sided scanning modes!  It can also scan a document as large as 8.5" by 65"! (inches) - perfect for legal documents.

Today is the launch announce date for the scanner, so availability will probably occur in retail and online over the next couple of weeks.  If you'd like to preview the scanner, visit our dedicated page and pick your country:

Here are 8 great things you can do with the KODAK SCANMATE i920 Scanner to get ahead.

This is something I'd like to have. I have NeatWorks mobile scanner - too slow and none of the features like double sided multi-page scanning.

Nikesh, this one should be one of the prizes for AR's next contest with Kodak, and I'd write a winning

I had a Fujitsu model for almost 4 years and it was really nice. It stopped working when my step-son's friend dropped on the floor. I plan to replacement and will check the Kodak model. Thanks for the inforamtion..

Niki, while I'm not ready to scan all my receipts, I do like scanners! 

My only question is, why do folks still have fax machines!?!?  Shouldn't scanners make them obsolete?

Why is this scanner so expensive?  I can buy a scanner/printer/copier for $100.00.

Posted by Miriam Bernstein, CRS over 9 years ago

I think these scanners will become very popular which will drive the price down like every other piece of tech equipment.  As Miriam noted above, it's almost cheper to buy a new copier/printer than it is to replace the ink.
